President Joe Biden allocated $7.5 billion for EV charging stations in 2021, aiming to build 500,000 chargers by 2030.

However, the U.S. currently has around 180,000 chargers, falling short of the needed 28 million by 2030.

The Biden administration faces opposition from Republicans in expanding the charging network, leading to debates around “Buy America” requirements for EV chargers. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

The administration’s temporary waiver for these requirements was met with Senate opposition, with the White House poised to veto the legislation.

The Federal Highway Administration said, “This short-term, temporary waiver was structured to enable EV charger acquisition and installation to immediately proceed while also ensuring the application of Buy America to EV chargers by the phasing out of the waiver over time,” in a statement.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law mandates that EV chargers use 55% domestic materials and be manufactured in the U.S.
