A 1282: Requires DEP to develop and implement electric school bus program; provides for $15 million in first year and $15 million annually in subsequent two years to DEP, subject to availability, to provide grants

A 1282 (Stanley, Haider, Timberlake) NJEA supports this pilot program for electric school buses. Clean energy school buses are an important step to helping the environment. What’s more, the bill provides for necessary training for school bus personnel to ensure proper operation and maintenance. The bill also provides needed protections to ensure that school districts are the beneficiaries of the program. NJEA appreciates the work of the sponsors in improving the pilot program.
