The 411 on Arkansas's electric and hybrid cars

In August 2008 at an Ohio town hall meeting, President Obama said that he was committed to seeing one million plug-in electric hybrids (PHEV) on American roads by 2015. According to Pike Research, a Colorado-based clean-technology consulting firm, Obama overshot, but just a wee bit. Pike claims that U.S. roads will host 667,000 PHEV's by 2015, but that the million mile-marker could be as close as 2016. Even so, PHEV's, EV's (electric vehicles) and supporting infrastructure have barely trickled into Arkansas. Currently the U.S. has more than 5,000 public charging stations. Only five of these are located in the Natural State.

But Monday, U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker issued a temporary restraining order against enforcement of the law, Act 577 of 2015, and Arkansas women once again had access to a method of abortion available nationwide.
