Driver Discipline Authority En Route to the Governor

San Antonio AllianceUncategorized

SB 1541 by Sen. Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio) and House author Rep. Alma Allen (D-Houston) is a bill to bolster authority for drivers to enforce discipline on board their school buses and protect students’ safety. SB 1541 was finally passed by the legislature today. We are pleased to report that the bill is now en route to the governor for final action. (Last week we prematurely reported final passage of the bill after SB 1541 passed in the House. We regret that error of enthusiasm, but now that the Senate has truly finished the job we are pleased to report we were just prematurely correct.)
