LaHood praises innovation at SC electric bus plant

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood on Thursday praised an electric bus manufacturer in South Carolina as a shining example of the innovative businesses President Barack Obama trumpeted in his most recent national address. “This is the touchstone example of what President Obama talked about in his State of the Union Tuesday night,” LaHood told workers at Proterra LLC’s Greenville facility. “This can be a model for the rest of the country.”
