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.
