The debate continues over Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont’s plan for all new cars in Connecticut to go all-electric.
Earlier this month, some state Republicans held a news conference bashing the plan. Supporters gathered Wednesday to fight back.
“Nobody is banning combustion engines in Connecticut, and shame on those people who are perpetuating that false and fake news,” Rev. Josh Pawelek with Unitarian Universalist Society East in Manchester said.
Electric vehicle advocates said people fighting the state phasing out of the sale of new gas-powered cars in a dozen years are engaging in fear-mongering and misinformation.
“If you are so opposed to electric vehicles, what have you proposed instead?” State Rep. Christine Palm (D-36th) said.
