Proposed Bill Aims to Boost Safety on Alabama School Buses


By Kristen Fisher


In the state of Alabama, lawmakers say there are not many consequences for unauthorized adults getting on school buses. But that may all change, especially after the deadly Connecticut school shooting.


A new bill is being proposed to make it a crime for adults trespassing on school buses.

The bill's sponsor, Republican Senator Cam Ward of Alabaster says if convicted, violators could face up to a year in prison.

If passed, it would also be a crime to vandalize or intend to damage to a bus.
Ward says the proposed law would make it harder for someone to harm children on a school bus.
