Arizona Governor Earmarks Millions For New School Buses

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says he’s earmarking $5 million toward buying 45 new school buses for charter schools and rural school districts.

The funds stem from a settlement with Volkswagen for modifying vehicles to cheat on emissions tests. Ducey released a $38-million plan in June 2018 to purchase 280 school buses with the settlement money.

The state has already spent nearly $32 million on 285 buses.
