US Senator Dan Coats and US Representative Larry Bucshon were both on the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT) campus recently to announce the school’s participation in EcoCAR 2: Plugging in to the Future. The RHIT team had the opportunity to show off their vehicle, and even took Sen. Coats for a ride around campus!

Sen. Coats and Rep. Bucshon showed their support for the EcoCAR program, taking great interest in the RHIT vehicle, and speaking to students and faculty about the importance of EcoCAR in paving the way to American energy independence.
