Rubio Pushes to Override Biden Veto, Blocking Chinese-made EV Chargers

Feb 29, 2024 | Press Releases

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) led an effort to overturn a Biden Administration rule that would send American tax dollars to Chinese competitors by waiving the Buy America requirements for electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. President Joe Biden vetoed the resolution. 

The Senate attempted to override the President’s veto. However, the veto override failed to reach the two-thirds majority needed to advance. 

  • “I was proud to lead this common-sense effort to prevent the Biden Administration from funneling American tax dollars to Chinese EV companies. It’s disappointing we didn’t have the votes to override this veto, but this isn’t the final word, and I hope we will have bipartisan support to claw these funds back from Chinese companies in the very near future.” – Senator Rubio

Flashback … Rubio’s resolution had previously passed both chambers of Congress with bipartisan support. The Senate initially passed Rubio’s joint resolution in November 2023, and the House of Representatives passed it in January 2024.
