The House Ways and Means Committee will vote this week to undo the Biden administration’s implementation of electric vehicle tax credit rules.

The Treasury Department this year finalized guidance on what cars quality for the Inflation Reduction Act’s lucrative incentives. Critics say the administration took an overly broad interpretation of the law.

The committee will seek to advance H.J. Res. 148, from Reps. Carol Miller (R-W.Va.) and Jared Golden (D-Maine). Not only would it send the administration back to the drawing board, it would also prevent similar rulemaking.


“The Biden Administration’s final rule on the Electric Vehicle Credit makes it clear that they are prioritizing misguided Green New Deal products coming from China over American investment in our domestic supply chain,” Miller said in a statement.
