LCV and Chispa Statement on VP Harris’ Clean School Buses Announcement

Washington, D.C. — In response to Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to an electric school bus manufacturer in North Carolina today where she highlighted the proposed $20 billion investment in clean, electric school buses in the American Jobs Plan, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and Chispa issued the following statement from Chispa National Director Johana Vicente:

“Vice President Harris is a true champion for kids and families facing the worst environmental pollution. After years of parents, students, and advocates organizing and speaking out for a clean ride for kids in their communities and statehouses, we were so proud to see the Biden-Harris administration include $20 billion in the American Jobs Plan to electrify school buses.

“This investment is a great starting point to create more good-paying manufacturing jobs here in the U.S. and ensure that all niños can breathe cleaner air in the formative years when their lungs are developing. We look forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration and Congress to get bold investments across the finish line for low-income communities of color who are most impacted by toxic pollution.”

As a Senator, Kamala Harris introduced the first piece of federal legislation to prioritize the electrification of school buses in low-income communities and communities of color, the Clean School Bus Act.
