LIMA — Bus safety legislation spurring from a 2007 crash involving Bluffton University students again is gaining steam.

The long-stalled bill could be wrapped into another surface transportation bill in the House, according to a Politico story published Tuesday.

Sens. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and Kay Bailey Hutchison, R- Texas, have co-sponsored a bill that would require safety belts and stronger seating systems, improved commercial driver training, anti-ejection glazing windows, strong crush-resistant roofs and improved protection against fires. It also would call for electronic onboard recorders.
