Would require, no later than January 1, 2028, any schoolbus used for the transportation of any pupil attending a public or private primary or secondary school to be equipped with passenger restraint systems. The bill would authorize the person or entity owning or operating a schoolbus to comply with the passenger safety restraint requirement either through retrofitting existing schoolbuses or purchasing new schoolbuses. Because a violation of the bill’s requirements would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
