U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow today made the following statement regarding the agreement on fleet modernization legislation.
"I'm very pleased that we have reached an agreement on fleet modernization legislation after weeks of work with the House, the Senate and the administration. I want to commend my House colleagues for their efforts.
"As a result of the agreement, this week I will be introducing a bi-partisan fleet modernization bill with Senator Sam Brownback and other colleagues. We have seen fleet modernization programs help the auto industry abroad. Soon I hope we will have a bill on the president's desk that will bring people back into showrooms, sell new cars and trucks and save jobs in Michigan. Today's announcement moves us toward the goal of taking less-efficient cars off the road and giving a boost to our economy at a time when it desperately needs one." -U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow.
