Arizona will be getting a little more than $11 million this year to pay for new electric vehicle charging stations.

That was part of the bipartisan infrastructure bill approved by Congress and signed by President Joe Biden late last year. The Federal Highway Administration estimates the state will get more than $76 million over five years for electric vehicle infrastructure.
