MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Public School System is getting almost $7.5 and a half million dollars from the federal government to buy 25 zero emissions school busses. 

The money comes from the EPA's Clean School Bus Program designed to help schools replace their existing busses, which have been linked to asthma and other student conditions. 

Twenty-four school districts across the state are getting money from the program. 

The Elmbrook district in Waukesha County gets 200,000 for one new "clean" bus.
