Benson, Swain & Tully Continue to Improve School Bus Rider Safety: Bill Allowing Termination & Debarment of Bus Contractors Clears Assembly Panel

Taking another step toward ensuring greater protections for student rider safety, a bill enabling school bus contracts to be terminated if companies allow drivers to transport students with suspended or revoked credentials was released Thursday by the Assembly Transportation Committee. The measure is sponsored by Assembly Democrats Daniel Benson, Lisa Swain and Chris Tully, all of which have sponsored multiple bills over the last year bolstering school bus safety.

"The safety of New Jersey's students on school buses should remain a top priority for the state, for school districts, and for the bus companies we enter into a contract with," said Benson (D-Mercer, Middlesex). "Those who provide transportation for our students must be held accountable, and the consequences must be severe when they endanger our children."
