Massachusetts Using Volkswagen Funds On Clean Air Projects

Good News Notes:

“Massachusetts is awarding $7.5 million the state received from a nationwide Volkswagen settlement in grants for 98 projects meant to help electrify the transportation sector and reduce air pollution.

The money comes from the settlement from Volkswagen’s illegal tampering of vehicle emission control equipment.

The state is using the money to help pay for a number of projects including the purchase of electric cars, diesel-hybrid electric waste collection trucks, liquid-propane-gas school buses, cleaner-diesel trucks and ferry engines, and a marine shore-power installation.”
