School Bus Legislation, an ACCG Agenda Item, Signed into Law

The Governor signed his first piece of legislation into law on February 15.  SB 25 corrects language that was passed last legislative session that created confusion about when a person must stop for a school bus on two-lane roads with a turning lane in the middle. The legislation clarifies that all cars must come to a complete stop on both sides of the road unless there is a grassy, concrete or other structure such as a median between the two directions of traffic.  
 
ACCG appreciates the General Assembly and the Governor for quickly moving to correct the error from last year. Click here to read State School Superintendent Richard Woods' statement on SB 25.
