Bush Seeks Hydrogen Car Funding Increase
INGTON (Reuters) - The Bush administration wants a 43 percent increase in federal funds to develop cars that run on hydrogen fuel and the service stations to support them.
The additional $69 million would bring the program's total funding to $228 million for the 2005 spending year, which begins Oct. 1, under the White House's proposed government budget released on Monday.
The money is part of President Bush's long-term initiative begun last year to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil by developing hydrogen-powered fuel cells to run cars, trucks, homes and businesses.
The emissions-free vehicles would also cut pollution as their only by-product would be water.
