You know the bandwagon's really rolling when the politicians jump on. Now Massachusetts lawmakers are considering a bill to provide buyers of hybrids and alternative fuel vehicles with a list of goodies including a $2,000 income tax exemption, free tollway transponders, and open access to HOV lanes. In addition, the bill would require that at least half of the state's vehicle fleet run on alternative fuels by 2010.

The bill also proposes an Alternative Fuels Institute at the University of Massachusetts.
