TRANSPORTING STUDENTS SAFELY TO SCHOOL, AND BACK HOME, IS A MAJOR RESPONSIBILITY FOR SCHOOL-BUS DRIVERS--WHO NEED TO BE BOTH FOCUSED AND FREE OF EXCESS NOISY-DISTRACTIONS.  JENNA BUSH HAGER BELIEVES THAT PROPANE-POWERED SCHOOL-BUSES ARE CREATING A QUIETER AND HEALTHIER RIDE.  THAT'S BECAUSE THEY'RE 50-PERCENT QUIETER THAN CONVENTIONAL DIESEL-BUSES--AND THEY'RE CLEANER.  RECENT STUDIES SHOW THAT EXPOSURE TO DIESEL-ENGINE EXHAUST CAN CAUSE BOTH SHORT- AND LONG-TERM HEALTH-EFFECTS.  BY USING PROPANE-FUEL, THE DAYS OF EXPOSING YOUNG PASSENGERS TO A BLACK CLOUD OF DIESEL-EXHAUST ARE OVER.  BUSES THAT ARE FUELED BY PROPANE ALSO PROVIDE LONG-TERM SAVINGS FOR SCHOOL-DISTRICTS, AS TRANSPORTATION-BUDGETS CONTINUE TO SHRINK.  THAT ALLOWS SCHOOLS TO REINVEST THE MONEY THAT THEY SAVE TO WHERE IT MATTERS THE MOST: IN THE CLASSROOM--SUPPORTING TEACHERS AND A BETTER LEARNING-ENVIRONMENT ALIKE.  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF PROPANE-POWERED SCHOOL-BUSES, VISIT "BETTER-OUR-BUSES"-DOT-COM.
