Representative Hornstein on electrification:
“As chair of the transportation committee, I am strongly committed to ensuring that beneficial electrification will be accessible to low income and under resourced communities. That is why I held a field hearing last year at North High School to specifically address this issue. I support Rep Lee’s legislation to prioritize utilization of electric busses in communities that are already facing higher rates of asthma on other health impacts.”
