INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - A bill to keep Hoosier children safer at their bus stops is one step closer to the governor's desk.
The Indiana House has passed the bill.
It would increase penalties for violating school bus traffic laws.
The bill also mandates roadside pickup on highways.
This version of the bill does not have a provision on districts pay8ing for stop arm camera with offender fees.
This effort has had a lot of support since the accident that killed three children waiting on their bus.
A conference committee is expected to hear the bill next week.
