On October 4, FCHEA, Toyota, and Honda held a fuel cell vehicle Ride & Drive event on Capitol Hill for members of Congress and their staff. Participants were able to ride and drive the 2017 Toyota Mirai or the 2017 Honda Clarity, and speak with representatives from Toyota and Honda to learn more about fuel cell vehicles and federal policies affecting the industry.

Among the lawmakers who stopped by the event were: Representatives Steve Stivers (OH-15), Bruce Poliquin (ME-2), Barbara Comstock (VA-10), Peter Roskam (IL-6), Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Subcommittee on Tax Policy, and Greg Walden (OR-2), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
