Perhaps you need to check out just how many "diesel" buses the school districts still have. Why not have them approve the use of Natural Gas for engines instead?

EPISD doesn't want the funds because they can't get into that pocket!

Why should the El Paso schools apply for this money? All they have to do is put our homes up as tax hostages and take as much as they want.

why would they apply for and WASTE this (not really) FREE money?

They have to upgrade their buses within the next year - 2 years to buses equipped with seat belts etc. which means new buses... or does no one remember that after 3 months?
