(Washington, D.C.) -- Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley is sponsoring a bill that would end the sale of gas-powered vehicles in the U.S. by 2035. Several states including Oregon and California have their own goals. This would put the U.S. on a path to increase production of electric and hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles. By 2025, half of vehicles would have to be electric. Then, every year that's increased by five-percent until 100-percent is reached by 2035.
