Bill outlaws blocking electric vehicle spaces

February 15, 2019

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s House wants to make it illegal to block spaces meant for charging electric vehicles.

Representatives approved the bill 63-27 on Thursday.

The measure requires the space to be designated for electric vehicle charging. A vehicle in that space must be “connected for electric charging purposes.”

A violation comes with a $50 fine.

The measure now goes to the Senate for consideration.
