This bill basically means that these one million shoppers will be paid if they go for a more "environmentally friendly - green" car. New cars would have to average at least 22 mpg to qualify for a $3,500 voucher. If the model gets 10 mpg better than the old car, the voucher will be increased to $4,500. Trucks would have to average at least 18 mpg and get at least 2 mpg than the old model for a $3,500 voucher. 5 mpg better will get the $4,500 voucher.
The voucher will be available for only one year and will be offered to one million new car shoppers.
