Marking National Plug In Day, Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday signed six different electric vehicle bills.

Some of the new laws deal with extending current programs aimed at reducing auto emissions, including the programs that allow electric vehicles in carpool lanes.

Several of the laws focus on streamlining infrastructure and making it easier and more convenient for drivers to charge their vehicles.
