Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says EPA doles out the bucks to American Lung Association for reducing air pollution from trucks.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded $1,118,142 to the American Lung Associations in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida to assist trucking companies in replacing older, more polluting vehicles and installing idle-reducing battery-powered air conditioners. This clean diesel project will create jobs while protecting the Southeast’s air quality.

The funds are provided under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 (ARRA) National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program. Under this funding competition, EPA Region 4 alone received 98 grant applications requesting over $140 million to help fund clean diesel emissions projects. The award announced today was chosen to both maximize economic impact and emissions reductions.
