Please Note: There have been questions as to whether offering free electric vehicle (EV) charging is considered a gift of public funds (per California AB 2414). A provision was released in Chapter 215 of the Government Code as an amendment to Section 14678  stating that free EV charging is NOT a gift of public funds. The excerpt below can be found in this amendment.

“Although a court may be unlikely to determine that the provision of electricity through electric charging stations is an unconstitutional gift of public funds that is used for a private purpose, this bill does not prohibit a court from making such a determination because a statute cannot supersede a constitutional provision. As a result, this bill merely seeks to clarify that providing electricity without charge through electric charging stations in state parking facilities is viewed as having a public purpose, and is therefore not a gift of public funds in violation of the California Constitution.”
