Just two weeks after of our delegation of 130 San Antonians brought community issues to Washington D.C., members of our Energy & Sustainability issue team have already received some great news. One of their issues related to the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act, which requested funding for the EPA National Clean Diesel Campaign to continue reducing diesel emissions, promoting the use of clean diesel equipment and trucks, and supporting voluntary measures that assist the region in meeting current and future National Ambient Air Quality Standards, has not only found its way into the President’s budget, but it also triples the amount of grant funds! In addition, the Water issue team received word that the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers work plan that came out last week includes $5 million reimbursement for the Mission Reach!
Thank you again to everyone who attended this year’s SA to DC. We look forward to celebrating many more wins related to this incredible trip.
