McCabe School Bus Seat Belt Bill Heard In Committee

A Washington State House committee is considering a bill by Goldendale Representative Gina McCabe that would require seatbelts on school buses.  The bill would require every school bus in Washington be equipped with a shoulder-harness seat belt by September 2018, and McCabe told the House Education Committee kids are at risk if they’re on a bus with no seat belts.  McCabe also proposes in the bill to require automated cameras be installed to detect drivers who blow through the stop arm when kids are getting on and off buses, and using the fines to pay for the seatbelts.  The measure is awaiting action in the House Education Committee.
