Highways and Transit Subcommittee Chairman Rick Crawford (R-AR) and 13 Members of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee today sent a letter to U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Secretary Pete Buttigieg expressing concerns over the lack of effective cybersecurity requirements in the Biden Administration’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program, which was established under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

One of their specific concerns is the Administration’s willingness to leave the development of NEVI cybersecurity protections up to the states without any substantial or uniform guidance, potentially leading to a patchwork system of up to 50 different approaches, in addition to security gaps.
