Volkswagen was caught cheating federal emissions tests, polluting the air we breathe with dangerous toxins. Now they are paying a $14.7 billion settlement, a large portion of which Maryland can use it right now to protect our kids and communities.
We’re asking Governor Larry Hogan and Maryland Department of the Environment Secretary Ben Grumbles to use the money Maryland is receiving from the VW settlement to upgrade our aging fleet of toxic diesel school buses to zero-emissions electric buses. This will clean the air in our communities, bolster the fight against climate change, and protect the lungs of the 623,000 kids who ride buses every day.
Tell Governor Hogan: Use the VW settlement money to switch Maryland’s dirty old diesel school buses to zero-emissions electric school buses!
