    The program established in 2008 is assigned the task of “purchasing or retrofitting 15,000 diesel-powered vehicles and pieces of equipment” with the aim of preventing respiratory illnesses nationwide and reducing the amount of pollutant being released in the atmosphere.  The program plans to reduce Nitrogen Oxide emissions by 46,000 tons over the lifetime of each vehicle.  It is expected that over 3.2 million gallons of fuel will be saved by the program and the program could save upwards of $1.4 billion in public health costs.
