The state House approved a bill Friday that would create a $124 penalty for drivers of gas-consuming cars who take up electric-vehicle spaces. Supporters say it’s necessary
because some drivers of electric vehicles who need to recharge are finding some spots are already occupied.
Under the law, electric-vehicle charging stations must be marked with a sign.
Drivers of electric vehicles may also face a fine if they park in the dedicated spots and don’t connect their vehicles to the charging equipment.
House lawmakers approved the measure 84-12. It previously passed the Senate and now goes to the governor.
