    • 66,000 battery electric delivery vehicles from defense contractor Oshkosh as part of its 106,000 vehicle acquisition plan for deliveries between now and 2028.
    • An additional 21k commercial ‘off the shelf’ vehicles will also be acquired
    • The current Grumman LLV doesn’t have a/c, airbags, and only gets 8.2 MPG
    • $3B in IRAct Funding Approx $1.3B for vehicles and $1.7B for infrastructure
  • It will take ‘someone foolish’ to do the job, but Musk is preparing to step down as the Twitter boss
    • There have been calls for Musk to step down from Twitter, with some investors and analysts expressing concerns that his involvement with the platform may be distracting him from running Tesla, the electric vehicle company he also runs.
    • “Musk projected that Twitter's cash flow will break even in 2023, a Bloomberg reporter tweeted on Wednesday, citing comments made in a Twitter Spaces session.”
    • “I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams," Musk wrote on Twitter.
