U.S. Federal Budget Would Lift Cap on Advanced Vehicle Purchases
The Obama administration is proposing to lift the dollar cap on federal purchases of advanced technology vehicles so agencies can wean themselves off of gas guzzlers.
A provision in the proposed fiscal 2011 budget unveiled Monday would allow agencies to disregard price limits when purchasing commercially available vehicles that operate on emerging technologies — including electric, plug-in hybrid electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
The plan, which requires congressional approval, would "allow us to further enhance our efforts to green the fleet," said Stephen Leeds, acting administrator of the General Services Administration, which manages the government's motor vehicle fleet.
