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 third of which Arizona can use right now to protect our kids and communities!
We’re demanding Governor Ducey use the $53 million Arizona 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 300,000 kids who ride buses every day.
Tell Governor Ducey: Use the VW settlement money to switch Arizona’s dirty diesel school buses to zero-emissions electric school buses!
Arizona Needs a #CleanRide4Kids
Dear Governor Ducey,
We have a historic opportunity. After Volkswagen cheated federal emission tests, they are paying back the consumers and states they harmed with a $14.7 billion settlement.
Arizona is receiving $53 million from the settlement and you need to put it to immediate use by transitioning to zero-emissions electric school buses and reducing toxic diesel pollution! This will protect the health of the 300,000 kids who ride buses to and from school in Arizona, as well as the air of the communities they drive through every day.
Our kids shouldn’t have to pay any price in order to receive an education. I urge you to use our state’s VW Mitigation Trust Fund money to upgrade our aging diesel-powered school buses to zero-emissions electric buses, giving our kids the clean ride they deserve!
