Electric motorcycle manufactures access funding

The United States House of Representatives has unanimously passed an amendment giving two-wheel electric vehicles manufacturers access to Department of Energy funding for further development of electric vehicles.

The amendment was included in HR 3246, the Advanced Vehicle Technology Act and passed the House on September 16, 2009, 312-114.

For the EV industry this will allow, for the first time, two wheel vehicles to benefit from federal Department of Energy funding.

Brammo, maker of the plug-in electric Enertia powercycle, applauds the House for including two-wheel vehicles in this amendment, and encourages the Senate to follow suit.

"It’s gratifying to see the House of Representatives recognize the tremendous potential of the two-wheel electric vehicle industry and their recent move to better equalize federal government support between electric motorcycles and cars," said Craig Bramscher, BRAMMO founder and CEO. "Brammo appreciates the efforts of U.S. Representative Patrick J. Kennedy and the rest of the House to gain passage of this important amendment and we look forward to continuing our work with our industry coalition partners, Plug IN America (www.pluginamerica.org), who was also instrumental in getting this legislation passed."

Brammo encourages voters to take a moment to tell their United States Senator’s to support and pass this measure when it comes up to vote. A complete list of Senators and their contact information can be found here.
