Brown Pushing Federal School Bus Bill

WASHINGTON, DC (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – U.S. Senator from Ohio Sherrod Brown continues to push his School Bus Safety Act.

The bill requires seat belts on school buses nationwide.

A few states already do require them.

Brown admits, even if his bill passes, it’ll take some time to equip all the buses.

The bill does include a funding mechanism.

Governor DeWine has convened a Bus Safety Task Force after the death of an 11-year-old boy on a bus that overturned near Springfield.
