School buses are often thought to be the safest way for children to travel to school. But it also a way that children are exposed to toxic pollution from diesel emissions. The pollution builds up in the cabin of the bus and can be 3-5 times higher than outdoor air. Diesel pollution can exacerbate asthma, contribute to respiratory disorders and even cause cancer.
The Georgia Clean Diesel Campaign is asking GA legislators for a minimum of $1.3 million in the form of an appropriation that will leverage $5-6 million in federal funds already on hand. This would eliminate the need for school systems to provide a 20% match out of their own budgets. It would also allow Georgia to double the number of clean buses already on the road in our state.
