Georgia Senate committees to study growth of electric vehicles statewide and HBCU expansion

(The Center Square) — Several state Senate committees will explore topics ranging from the electrification of transportation to how the state can support growth at historically Black colleges and universities.

The Joint Study Committee on the Electrification of Transportation, established by Senate Resolution 463 and running until the end of the year, will, in part, explore how to build electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the state. Georgia officials have announced more than 20 EV-related projects since 2020.

Rivian Automotive plans to build a $5 billion plant along Interstate 20 in Morgan and Newton counties. Additionally, Hyundai Motor Group plans to invest more than $5.5 billion to build its first fully dedicated electric vehicle and battery manufacturing facility, to be located along Interstate 16 in Bryan County and served by the Georgia Central Railway.
