My honest opinion on this school bus buy grant. Its another democrat tactic of pushing their green new deal. I read an article that the Biden administration was offering 1billion dollars for scholarship programs and grants if school district bought this buses. But then again, Im only expressing my opinion. The cost of maintenance, and now the building of charging system? This buses to be driven only local? Hope KISD makes a good decision, and not just based on the money offered.
