NGVAmerica Members Host Senator Ted Cruz
NGV Industry Meets with Senator to Discuss Parity for Natural Gas Vehicles
San Antonio, TX – NGVAmerica members on Friday hosted a facility tour and policy roundtable with Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to discuss the importance of parity for Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs).
VIA Metropolitan Transit, San Antonio’s public transit agency, joined with NGVAmerica to host Senator Cruz at its CNG fueling station, the largest in North America. The Senator toured the fueling facility and participated in a policy roundtable, discussing issues of importance to the NGV industry. Roundtable participants discussed the extension of the Alternative Fuels Tax Credit (AFTC), a $0.50 per gallon credit on CNG, LNG, or RNG sold or used as motor vehicle fuel, and asked for Senator Cruz’s support in extending the provision as soon as possible.
“Reinstatement of the AFTC is crucially important to fleets that have made investments in clean natural gas vehicle technology” said Allison Cunningham, NGVAmerica Director, Federal Government Affairs. “We are hopeful that when Members of Congress return to Washington this week, they will move expeditiously to extend these expired credits and begin thinking about a longer-term future for the AFTC and other important clean transportation initiatives. We appreciate the Senator for being so generous with his time and for his ongoing support of NGVs.”
