Susan Caperton writes:

This bill has already been introduced in the Education Committee. Why again. However, he does not have the 150 ft. restriction. If an RSO is driving down the road behind a bus and it stops, then you are in violation? There has to be some reasonability to these laws. What about RSO's with children. You cannot completely cut off their ability to get their children to school. This is unnecessary.

Mary writes:

This bill was amended to ONLY include school buses, which is completely acceptable.
