Transcript

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



Del. Dave LaRock (R-Loudoun): STOPPED SCHOOL BUSES RECORDED BY AN APPROVED SCHOOL BUS CAMERA MONITORING SYSTEM. AS AMENDED IN CONFERENCE IT WILL PROVIDE GREATER PROTECTION TO THE INDIVIDUAL ACCUSED OF VIOLATING THE STOP STOPPED SCHOOL BUS LAW. WE'VE ALSO ADDED LANGUAGE, NEW LANGUAGE IN THE SECOND CONFERENCE TO AVOID AN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF THESE PROTECTIONS. PASSING THIS BILL WILL SUPPORT THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY'S ONGOING COMMITMENT TO PROTECTING CHILDREN BOARDING AND EXITING A SCHOOL BUS. I HOPE WE WILL VOTE YES ON THIS CONFERENCE REPORT.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE GENTLEMAN FROM ALBEMARLE, MR. BELL.

Del. Rob Bell (R-Charlottesville): MR. SPEAKER, I'D LIKE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THE BILL.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE GENTLEMAN HAS THE FLOOR.

Del. Rob Bell (R-Charlottesville): MR. SPEAKER, THE GENTLEMAN WAS KIND ENOUGH TO LET US TAKE THIS BACK OUT OF THE FIRST CONFERENCE REPORT, AND WHAT SOMEONE DISCOVERED, ONCE THEY REVIEWED IT, WAS AN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE, BUT COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL HOUSE VERSION THAT PASSED ALREADY, THIS HAS ADDITIONAL PROTECTIONS FOR A DRIVER THAT FIND THEMSELVES CAUGHT UP IN THE WEB WHEN THEY WERE NOT THE DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE OR IN FACT THEIR CAR HAS BEEN STOLEN, ADDITIONALLY, THE LAST MINUTE ADDITION WAS TO MAKE SURE WE DIDN'T LIMIT THE EVIDENCE THEY COULD PUT ON TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. IF YOU VOTED FOR THE ORIGINAL BILL, YOU SHOULD CERTAINLY VOTE FOR THIS ONE AND EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T VOTE FOR THAT ONE YOU MIGHT BE WILLING TO VOTE FOR THIS ONE. THANK YOU MR. SPEAKER.

[Unknown]: SHALL THE CONFERENCE REPORT BE ADOPTED?
