From Washington Examiner:

Ashley Nunes, director of competition policy for the R Street Institute, was happy about the bill’s “$65 billion allocation to improving broadband in low-income communities,” which he described as “smart, timely, and long overdue.” He explained that “internet connectivity improves economic mobility by giving communities access to many services” and suggested to the Washington Examiner that “the Biden administration should be commended for this.”

Nunes was less enthusiastic about $7.5 billion that the bill allocates for electric vehicle charging infrastructure, which “seems like a waste given consumers don’t want to stand on the side of I-95 for hours topping off their batteries. They want to charge their EVs from the comfort of their home.”
