Clean School Bus Funding
Bottom line: Congress seeks answers from EPA on Clean School Bus Funding.
Congressman Bob Latta (OH-5), along with twelve other Members of Congress, sent a letter to the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) asking the agency to explain how they calculated funding levels for the Clean School Bus Program. In April, EPA announced its intent to provide $375,000 for an electric school bus while only providing $30,000 for propane buses as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The IIJA directed EPA to award funds based on the lowest overall cost of the bus and technologies that reduce the most emissions – propane is better than electric in most instances on both of these requirements. In the letter, these Members ask EPA to explain their calculations and ask the Agency to reconsider the funding amounts. Find the full letter HERE. If you have any questions, please reach Andrew Healey, Manager of Legislative Affairs.
