Republicans held firm in a blue state and Democratic Governor Ned Lamont backed down and withdrew his proposal to adopt the new California car standards, which phase in EV mandates even more quickly than Biden’s national standards and include a total ban on all new internal combustion vehicles by 2035.

Or, how do you explain neighboring New Jersey? The governor recently announced that the Garden State will ban gas-powered cars by 2035. And, how is this for Orwellian double-speak? The government is claiming this move will “preserve consumer choice.” Reminds us of the line from Henry Ford about the Model T: “You can buy it in any color you want as long as it’s black.”
