Senate approves bill to require seat belts on school buses

Published on April 26, 2017 under CommunityImpact

The Texas Senate on Wednesday passed legislation requiring three-point seat belts be installed on newly-purchased school buses across the state.  Senate Bill 693, authored by Sen. Sylvia Garcia, D-Houston, cleared the chamber in a 25-6 vote following strong pushback from one Republican who suggested seat belts make buses less safe. “Seat belts save lives,” Garcia said on the floor.Via Texas Tribune
