Cash for Clunkers: Not a new program.

Texas has been doing a similar program on a state level since 2001 with great success and bi-partisan support. It was a Republican bill initially and has been carried by Republicans and supported by Democrats.

Along with this program there is a program that is pretty much the same but is for heavy equipment and big trucks like dump trucks.

The programs were started to deal with air quality programs and are attributed to helping Dallas become the first city to have it's Clean Air Plan approved by the EPA.http://www.ens-newswire.com/ens/jul2008/2008-07-03-091.asp
