Transcript

This is a transcript of the video clips in which this bill is discussed.



Del. Dave LaRock (R-Loudoun): BILL THAT WOULD DEAL WITH THE SECTION OF A CODE THAT VIRGINIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY PASSED TO PERMIT SCHOOL BUSES TO USE VIDEO MONITORING SYSTEMS TO ENHANCE SCHOOL BUS SAFETY. AND PREVENTS MAILING SUMMONS FOR SIMILAR TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS AND THE ACTION IS NECESSARY BECAUSE CURRENT STATE LAW REQUIRES LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS TO SERVE SUMMONS ON THE ALLEGED VIOLATOR. WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO MAIL, THE CURRENT REQUIREMENT OF PERSONAL SERVICE TIES UP OFFICERS WHO MIGHT FIND, AND SERVE, THE VIOLATOR. WHICH IS NOT A GOOD USE OF TIME. THAT COMPLETES MY COMMENTS. I MOVE THE BILL BE ENGROSSED AND PASSED TO THIRD READING.

[Unknown]: THANK YOU. HOUSE BILL 168 AND 132 WILL BE MOVED TO TOMORROW'S CALENDAR, CONTINUING.
SCHOOL BUSES, MAILING OF RELATING TO PASSING STOPPED SHALL THE BILL PASS? SUMMONS. THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL. AYES 94, NOS FIVE. AYES 94, NOS FIVE, THE BILL IS PASSED.
ANOTHER DAY. WITH THAT OBJECTION, HOUSE BILL 879 WILL GO BYE FOR THE DAY. HOUSE BILL 168. A BILL RELATING TO PASSING STOPPED SCHOOL BUSES MAILING OF SUMMONS. REPORTED FROM THE COMMITTEE CONTRAPTION WITH A SUBSTITUTE. THE NO ARE FROM ROCKINGHAM. I MO BE THAT THE BILL PASS. WE HAVE A SUBSTITUTE. I MOVE THAT THE COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE BE AGREED TO. THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS THAT WILL THE SUBSTITUTE BUFFALO BILLS BE AGREED TO. ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE. THOSE OPPOSED, NO. THE AYES HAVE IT. THE SUBSTITUTE IS AGREED TO. THE SENATOR FROM ROCKINGHAM. I MOVE THE BILL PASS AND DOES EXACTLY WHAT THE TITLE SAYS THAT IT DOES. PROVIDES THE LOCALITY AUTHORIZED BY ORDINANCE THE INSTALLATION OF VIDEO MONITORING ON SCHOOL BUSES FOR UNLAWFUL PASSING AND CAN EXECUTE A SUMMONS BY MAIL.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE QUESTION IS THAT WILL HOUSE BILL 168 PASS. ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WILLY E, THOSE OPPOSED NO. ARE THE SENATORS READY TO VOTE? HAVE ALL THE SENATORS VOTED? DO ANY SENATORS DESIRE TO CH ANGE THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL. THEIR VOTE?

[Unknown]: AYES 33, NOS 7. AYES 33, NOS 7. THE BILL PASSES.

No. This idea is just as repulsive as red-light cameras.
