‘Cash for Clunkers’ Bill Heads to White House


Detroit News - June 18, 2009

After brisk debate the $1 bil­lion “cash for clunk­ers” bill has passed both hous­es of Con­gress and is head­ed to the White House for sig­na­ture. The bill pro­vides for up to $4,500 cred­its toward the pur­chase of a more fuel-effi­cient car or truck. The tradein must be crushed. Sen­ate Democ­rats had to make the pro­vi­sion a part of the war spend­ing bill to insure pas­sage; even then it was close.
