Ohio and other states are in the process of determining how to dole out a $15 billion settlement from Volkswagen after allegations in 2016 it cheated on emissions. The Ohio EPA says some of the money will be available this summer to use for electric vans, buses and even tractor-trailers. The money can also fund charging stations.

A bipartisan bill in the Senate would offer incentives for electric vehicles by creating a $500 sales tax credit for purchase of an EV for personal use and higher tax credits for commercial use.
