The regional ecotax was proposed by the government and validated at first reading by the National Assembly, but the Senate does not want it as it is.
During their commission, the senators radically revised the text. First of all, they considered that this first version of the text was extremely complex to implement and could have undesirable effects of competition between the regions.
Senators also made the termination of TICPE reimbursement conditional on the availability of an alternative to diesel engines.
The Senate wants to set up a zero rate loan to allow transporters to transform their trucks towards ecological solutions (electric, hydrogen or biofuel).
