EV charging stations bill appears headed for easy passage

Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Paul Netusil plugs his car into an electric vehicle charing station in Hilo on Monday. Netusil is waiting for a charging station to be installed in his garage at home, but until then, he has been using public chargers.

A proposal to require owners of public parking lots to install electric vehicle chargers has been recommended for passage by a Hawaii County Council committee.
