Biden Plan For Electric School Buses Facing Criticism

The White House has unveiled an ambitious plan… at a very high cost by the way… for electric school buses. If it happens as currently envisioned by the Biden Administration, Virginia is one of 37 states that will receive the funding to pay for the addition of more electric school buses. In total, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s plan will award nearly $2 billion to pay for approximately 5,000 electric school buses nationwide. Critics of the plan though, argue it is being done without time to understand how the buses perform in a variety of conditions or to prepare the electric grid to handle the additional strain.
