Texas Senate Passes Rebate for Hybrid Cars

In a bill intended to cut down on plants in heavily polluted areas, the Texas Senate included a rebate for people who buy plug-in hybrid cars. The bill still has to go to the House (Source: Chron.com). The bill sets up a $4,000 rebate for anyone who buys a plug-in hybrid.

According to the wording in the bill (as it currently stands), the rebate program run by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) would set up a phone number and web site for consumers to use.  Automakers would need to submit their list of vehicles to the program in order to get it onto the list of eligible vehicles.  The program would expire on January 1, 2019.

It's estimated the program would cost $200,000 in both 2010 and 2011, with an increase of $105,00 in each following year.  The initial costs are to set up the rebate database.
