It’s Electric: Electric School Bus Bill To Provide $45 Million For School Districts Wins Support from Assembly Transportation Committee

The Assembly Transportation Committee released A1282 (Stanley/Haider/Timberlake) this morning with a supermajority of support. The bill requires the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to develop and implement a three-year “Electric School Bus Program.” The purpose of the program is to determine the operational reliability and cost effectiveness of replacing diesel-powered school buses with electric school buses for daily transportation of students. This bill provides for $15 million in the first year and $15 million annually in subsequent two years to NJDEP, a total of $45 million subject to availability, to provide grants.
