Tell your state senator to electrify school buses today

Every day that we allow children to ride to and from school in diesel buses, we are putting them at risk. Diesel school buses are toxic to human health and polluting our air and climate. Diesel exhaust is known to cause and exacerbate asthma, heart and lung disease, and lung cancer, and children are especially susceptible. If we want to reduce our impact on the climate and put public health first, we need to focus on electrifying diesel vehicles like school buses.

A bill was recently introduced, and just passed unanimously through the Senate Environment and Energy Committee, that will start to electrify school buses all across New Jersey -- but it won't get passed without your support. Let your state senator know that you support electric school buses.
