17 Mar: Madden Bill Would Designate May 27 As ‘School Bus Driver Appreciation Day’

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senator Fred H. Madden, which would designate May 27 of each year as “School Bus Driver Appreciation Day,” was unanimously approved today by the full Senate.

“This resolution would serve as a ‘thank you’ to the men and women who transport our children to and from school each day,” said Senator Madden, D-Camden and Gloucester. “School bus drivers have to keep the peace on the bus, while also maneuvering through traffic. It’s not always easy to deal with other people’s children, especially in a setting like a school bus, where traffic can take a turn for the worst at a moment’s notice.”
