The message is clear, these proposed regulations will only hurt those that can least afford higher energy costs.  We cannot afford higher vehicle prices. Our underserved communities are already suffering in this economic climate.  By focusing on ONE technology—electrification—it will be costly and less reliable, especially in our rural communities.  The California grid is outdated and cannot support our current energy needs, even now. Where will these charging stations be located?  In the cities?  How will those of us in low-income communities get to those stations?  I am a small farmer.  I cannot afford to replace all my equipment including trucks and tractors.  I use a variety of fuels including diesel.  I cannot afford to replace all that would be necessary under your proposed Scoping Plan.  Please consider those of us in areas of economic hardship.
