Bill allowing school board members to be volunteer bus drivers up for public hearing Tuesday

The Assembly Committee on Local Government will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, June 6 on a number of bills including one (Assembly Bill 233) that would allow school board members to serve as voluntary school bus drivers provided certain conditions are met (see below). The bill is an effort to provide more potential school bus drivers in an environment where many schools are facing driver shortages. The Senate companion bill (note: companion bills are identical versions introduced in the other house so they can make their way through the legislative process more quickly) was recommended for approval by the Senate education committee on a unanimous, bipartisan vote.
The WASB supports this bill.
