Protect funding for electric transportation

42 percent of carbon emissions in New Jersey come from transportation, especially diesel trucks, buses, and other vehicles. These vehicles spew dangerous carbon emissions, particulate matter, and nitrous oxides, all of which lead to poorer health for New Jerseyans.

New Jersey received $72.2 million from the Volkswagen settlement -- money that is earmarked for improving air quality across the state.

We need to make sure that money is used wisely -- to electrify buses, trucks, and port vehicles especially in urban areas and to increase electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the state.
