WASHINGTON – Today, Representative Josh Harder (CA-9) announced that Stockton Unified School District will receive $6.9 million in federal funds to replace 20 diesel school buses with new clean electric buses. Stockton has some of the worst air quality in the country and was named one of the nation’s top ‘Asthma Capitals.’

“I grew up with childhood asthma because of our poor air quality and I don’t want my daughters to have to deal with it too,” said Rep. Harder. “These 20 new electric buses will help our kids breathe cleaner air, save taxpayer dollars, and combat climate change. A real win-win-win. Excited to bring this funding home.”

The federal funds for these electrified buses were made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act, which Rep. Harder championed in 2022.
