The Senate will try Thursday to override President Joe Biden’s veto of a resolution against the administration’s efforts to increase electric vehicle charging stations.

S. J. Res. 38, from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), would undo a Federal Highway Administration waiver from domestic sourcing requirements for EV chargers funded through the bipartisan infrastructure law.

The Congressional Review Act measure got bipartisan support in both chambers, but the administration said it would backfire and further weaken Buy America requirements. The president’s veto will likely stand. Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Jon Tester of Montana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Democrat-turned-independent Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona voted for the resolution.
