The City of Malibu, Calif., sent a letter to congressional leaders Aug. 4 asking that the next stimulus bill include funding to help the city with its “conversion to an all-electric city fleet” of cars, according to the Santa Monica Lookout.
Sent to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the letter lists a number of critical projects "intended to improve our environment while reducing city costs."
These include "conversion to an all-electric city fleet, a solar energy project, streetlight upgrades, and resiliency projects related to wildfire and earthquake preparation, among others.”
These projects, officials said, "have been postponed indefinitely due to projected budget shortfalls.”
