For many years, Arizona was considered an electric-car friendly state, thanks to California-style tailpipe emissions and mandates which required automakers to sell a certain percentage of zero-emissions cars in order to sell in the state.

But less than a month after the Arizona Governor’s Regulatory Review Council voted to repeal the state’s Clean Cars law and adopt the less-stringent emissions standards set out in Federal law, the state is now considering charging a pay-per-mile tax on electric car use.

Arizona House Bill 2257 -- introduced by Rep. Steve Farley (D-AZ) -- is modeled on proposed Oregonian legislation and would charge electric car owners up to 1.43 cents per mile travelled.
