New Mexico Governor Mandates All State Vehicles Must be Electric by 2035

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico issued an executive order on Monday requiring all state government agencies to transition to electric vehicle fleets by 2035.

She also announced plans to increase tax credits in order to make electric vehicles more “affordable”.

During remarks at the state Department of Transportation’s Symposium on the Future of Transportation in New Mexico, Lujan Grisham emphasized that her government was taking action to ensure wide adoption of low- and zero-emission vehicles, citing Clean Car rules and tax credits as examples.

“I took action today to make sure the state is ‘walking the walk’ when it comes to widely adopting low- and zero-emission vehicles by requiring the state fleet to be zero-emission by 2035,” she said.

“By 2035, the state fleet will be 100% electric.”

It remains to be seen if she will still be governor in 12 years, but her current dedication to this initiative reflects her ambition to make lasting change.

This mandate is causing many to wonder, how can she make decisions today for what will happen over a decade from now?
