EV growth to be a highway tax challenge for Kansas

Officials are expecting to see more electric vehicles in Kansas in the years to come, but this will have a major impact on how the state funds roads. Lawmakers are starting to look at potential long-term solutions.

It’s the same challenge in Oklahoma and while the two states have yet to see a dramatic increase in the number of EV users, it is likely to be a problem in the future.
