Some Bronx residents skeptical about mayor?s school bus technology plan
Mayor Bloomberg (R-NY) is calling for new school bus technology that will cut down on air pollution, but some Bronx residents say they aren't satisfied. The mayor recently signed a law to reduce the emission of air pollution in any vehicles carrying children to and from school. School buses must use fuel that is lower in sulfur and each bus must have pollution control technology installed.Members of the South Bronx Clean Air Coalition, however, say clean air legislation means little without proper funding and diligent enforcement. City Council member John Liu's office said half of the city's school buses will be fitted with the clean air technology by September of next year. The devices must be fitted on all the buses by September of 2007.
