Environmental lawyer Sanders says EPA awards $196,000 to help Kentucky curb diesel emissions from idling school buses.

U.S. EPA Region 4 awarded $196,000 in federal funds for diesel emission reductions in Kentucky. The Kentucky Division for Air Quality previously announced that the funding will be used to retrofit school buses with pollution reduction devices and to implement idle reduction policies.

Idle reduction ties in with Kentucky’s newly released comprehensive energy plan’s focus on improving energy efficiency in all sectors.

Kentucky is an active participant along with other Southern states in a Southeast Diesel Collaborative. The program seeks to reduce diesel emissions throughout the region. Applications for Kentucky’s Clean School Bus funding are due December 19. The grant application is available at http://www.air.ky.gov.
