The initiative, which encourages commercial fleet owners to invest in new natural gas vehicles through grants administered by the Office of Energy at the Florida Department of Agriculture, was welcomed by Eric Criss, Chairman of the Florida Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition (FNGVC), who congratulated the legislature on its action.
“Florida now leads the nation in our crucial drive toward energy independence. This is an important step forward in America’s evolving national security policy and in protecting our environment. I commend Senator Simpson, Representative Lake Ray and their colleagues on both sides of the aisle for this important accomplishment,” said Criss.
