Congresswoman introduces Clean Commute for Kids Act

On this Earth Day, 5th District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes has introduced the Clean Commute for Kids Act.  The proposal would transition school bus fleets from diesel to zero-emissions.  She says this is a first step to addressing climate change and its effects on public health.  Hayes notes that school buses are the nation’s largest form of mass transportation and the sector emitting the highest level of greenhouse gases in the country.  The bill would provide $25 billion over the next ten years to tackle this endeavor, prioritizing communities most under served and affected by air pollution. Hayes notes that not only will the proposal launch our nation forward as a climate leader, but it will protect the most vulnerable children from the ramifications of pollution-related diseases like asthma.
