    “The districts will need to provide proof that the engine and chassis have been permanently disabled”.

    Does anyone remember the Cash for Clunkers fiasco several years ago that required the car to be permanently disabled? That Government program resulted in a dearth of used cars on the market, with used car prices going through the roof.

    Smaller schools and districts, and even foreigners, are the primary buyers of used buses. Does this program mean that the purchasers of used buses are going to come up against the same type of problem that used car buyers, and dealers, faced with the past government program?

    Whenever a "Government" gets involved in a program, the end results are often detrimental in their outcomes.

    Wait Wait Wait!!! Utah doesn't want Federal dollars from the Obama administration. Right? That's why we don't have Medicaid expansion. We should turn this grant money down if we want to remain true to our values. Right? Otherwise, it would be hypocrisy.
