Region 2 TCTAC We Act comments to AP on transition from diesel to electric school buses

In a report about parents pushing for a transition from diesel powered to electric school buses, the Associated Press interviewed Lonnie Portis, policy and advocacy director for Region 2 TCTAC We Act for Environmental Justice. “It’s this perpetual cycle of bad air quality," he said of diesel school buses. In hard-hit, or environmental justice neighborhoods, he added, “you’re removing at least some of that by putting electric school buses in the rotation.” ABC News, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Lincoln Journal Star, Omaha World-Herald, Telegraph Herald, Denver Gazette, Portland Press Herald, and other outlets shared the AP report.
