Poochigian Proposal Would Upgrade School Buses
Sacramento, CA — A proposal introduced by Senator Chuck Poochigian would provide funds to replace the state´s older school buses with new ones.
The Fresno Republican talked with reporters at the state capitol Tuesday saying the old buses don´t meet safety or air quality standards.
The proposed “clean air” and school bus safety” programs would phase out the older buses over the next five years.
It would initially focus on buses that were manufactured before 1977, and then work on removing others.
