Volkswagen Update: March 2018
There haven’t been any new announcements around the VW Settlement since our last update, but there are states getting closer to finalizing their state plans. Each state is working diligently to determine how they are going to use their portion of the funds. However, before doing so, each state must publish a Beneficiary Mitigation Plan and make it publicly available for at least 30 days.
Have you engaged with your state agency to create financial incentive opportunities for propane school buses? As a reminder, states can select which fuel and vehicle types they want to fund. Without active engagement, we run the risk of not having funding for buses fueled by propane.
As a next step, we highly recommend contacting Chelsea Jenkins Chelsea.Jenkins@roush.com to discuss how best to approach your state agencies.
