As schools start wrapping up for summer recess, several Colorado districts will begin retrofitting aging diesel school busses to clean up emissions. But a federal funding source that’s traditionally kept this program afloat could be in jeopardy for next year.

More than a dozen environmentalists rallied in downtown Fort Collins today. At issue was Republican 4th Congressional District Congressman Cory Gardner’s support of legislation that would have blocked the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gas emissions.
The protesters delivered a letter to Congressman Gardner, questioning his support for a bill that would have taken away the EPA’s ability to limit carbon dioxide emissions. Gary Wockner is Colorado program director for Clean Water Action, which helped organize Friday’s event.
