ONE of the reasons I want a Model S if for that beautiful white sticker which is set to expire Jan 2015. That's a little over 1 year away. AB266 is supposed to extend that to 2020 but there is a lot more opposition to it now than ever before (especially from Orange County). It has to do with laws about minimum average speed in an HOV lane being 45mph or more or else a county can lose federal funding. HOV lanes are getting more and more full and there is worry extending the expiration will contribute to the loss of federal funds.
If AB266 does not pass, then it does take one check mark out of the "pro" column for me. And it was a big check mark. So I am patiently waiting for this thing to pass before I place my deposit. But I'm getting antsy!
Does anyone have any non-speculative information about how AB266 is doing right now and when we will finally have an answer if it will pass or not?? (the last I saw on the subject on this forum is from April so am hoping for new info).
