Good news for clean, green transportation in California

Electric school buses and high speed rail recieve some much-needed funding

Late Wednesday night, the California legislature passed next year’s budget, which includes significant funding to keep our air clean and breathable. 

Highlights include $1.5 billion to support clean, electric school buses—which equates to approximately 3000 new electric school buses along with the infrastructure needed to support them. $4.2 billion was also included to advance the state’s high-speed rail project.

With so many Californians living with unhealthy air quality, we applaud these investments and encourage our legislature to do even more to protect our air and environment!
