[ARCHIVED] Assembly Approves EV Charging Station Bill

The Assembly, on Thursday, passed Assembly Committee Substitute for A-2108 & A-5032, which the League opposes.

The bill would make an application for development submitted solely for the installation of electric vehicle supply equipment or make-ready spaces a permitted accessory use and permitted accessory structure in all zoning or use districts of a municipality. The bill would also require the Department of Community Affairs to adopt a “model ordinance” regarding EV charging structures, using a process outside of the traditional rulemaking process, thereby removing any requirement for public input or comment. This model ordinance would become effective in all municipalities.

 The measure now goes to the Senate, which has already passed its own version of the bill but must now concur with Assembly amendments before it can be placed on the governor’s desk for his action. While the League is cognizant of the benefits promised by the electrification of the transportation system and the need for the requisite infrastructure to realize these benefits, we do not believe that this legislation provides an appropriately balanced means for achieving these ends. We continue to try to work with the legislature to make amendments to address our concerns.
