The House voted to overturn President Biden’s waiver of “Buy America” requirements for taxpayer-funded electric vehicle charging stations.

The resolution, previously passed by the Senate, aims to prevent Chinese manufacturers from benefiting from the waiver.

The waiver rules were revised to a two-phase process, requiring final assembly of chargers in the U.S. and 55% American-made components by cost beginning in July 2024. (Trending: GOP Rep. Mace Clashes Directly With Hunter Biden At Hearing)

The Biden administration sees this as part of its push to expand EV manufacturing and charging infrastructure.

“I voted to overturn Joe Biden’s pro-Communist China rule that would undermine American businesses that have made significant investments into EV manufacturing,” House Republican Chair Elise Stefanik stated.

“Biden’s waiver of the Buy America requirements empower our foreign adversaries like Communist China by pouring hard-earned American taxpayer dollars into foreign markets.”

“Joe Biden and his America Last agenda would sooner invest taxpayer money into Communist Chinese EV chargers than American-made products,” she added.

“The Buy America provision is meant to support American businesses and bolster U.S. manufacturers, neither of which this pro-Communist China Administration is interested in.”
