10 May: Turner Measure To Improve School Bus Safety Approved In Committee

TRENTON – The Senate Education Committee approved legislation today sponsored by Senator Shirley K. Turner that would strengthen school bus safety standards and provide more stringent licensing requirements for school bus drivers.

Senator Turner said, “The need for this measure was originally brought to my attention after a series of school bus incidents earlier this year shed light on several of the gaps in New Jersey’s school bus safety procedures. This Monday’s the school bus crash only makes the issue all the more urgent to address.”
