Sen. Seminara cites concerns about CT gas car ban

October 10, 2023

Sen. Lisa Seminara (R-8th) opposes the ban, citing concerns about potential restrictions on consumer freedom and the unforeseen consequences of the regulation.

These concerns include the capability of Connecticut’s electric grid and the state’s already high electrical rates, potential fire hazards, affordability issues and the viability and sufficiency of charging stations.

Additionally, Sen. Seminara is apprehensive about the environmental impact of discarded lithium-ion batteries and expresses concern about the negative economic implications for lower-income communities in the state.
