Senate bill targets drivers who pass stopped school buses

Senate Republicans are promoting a bill that would let school districts put cameras on the stop arms of school buses to help catch drivers who illegally pass stopped buses.

Violators could be fined $250 under the bill, which was first introduced five years ago and has never passed in either the Senate or Assembly. Sen. John Bonacic, a Mount Hope Republican and one of 17 sponsors, attended a press conference in Albany on Tuesday to urge lawmakers to pass the bill before the 2018 legislative session ends next Wednesday.
