U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is showing quick reaction time and genuine caring for her constituency in the wake of the tragic bus accident near Sherman, Texas, a week ago in which 17 people died and many others were injured.

Hutchison, the Republican senior senator from Texas, and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio. a Democrat, are proposing a new law titled The Motorcoach Enhanced Safety Act of 2007 (S.2326) in a laudible effort to improve bus safety.

Pointing to the Texas tragedy and other bus accidents that have also claimed lives recently in Mississippi and Nevada, Sen. Hutchison said, “I urge Congress to make this a priority after the August recess so the roads will be safer for everyone.”
