WASHINGTON - "Fore!"
The federal government is preparing to spend millions to purchase a fleet of small electric vehicles that critics compare to golf carts.
The $838 billion economic stimulus bill that passed the Senate yesterday contains $300 million for the government to purchase a fleet of "green" cars.
But the money won't just go to buy fuel-efficient hybrids such as the Ford Escape or Chevy Volt.
The cash also can be used to purchase "neighborhood electric vehicles."
