|Mixed Reactions Greet CARB's Resolution to Cleanse California of Diesel Buses, Trucks|
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- In late September, the California Air Resources Board passed a resolution that would remove all pre-1977 diesel school buses from state roads by 2003.
There are an estimated 5,000 of those buses currently in operation.CARB maintained the resolution is a public safety issue and added diesel fuels simply cannot compete with alternative fuels.
Diesel engine builders have fired back, maintaining today's diesel-fueled buses are just as clean as any alternative-fueled bus.
Others support the CARB resolution, particularly those engine builders already producing CNG or LPG-powered buses.
