BUTTIGIEG: "So I can’t think of a better way to mark this Earth Day than by discussing the future of electric vehicles in America. And I can’t think of a better way to do it than in front of charging stations like these. Charging infrastructure and the businesses that deliver it are helping to open a new way to a new era in transportation. And we’re thrilled to see where this road is going to take us. The President has said that when he thinks about climate, he thinks jobs, and vice versa. And at the Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration, we recognize that electric vehicles and the charging networks that fuel them are good for the planet and help create good-paying American jobs."
