Senators passed a bill Thursday directing the Child Fatality Task Force to study the installation and use of seat belts on school buses. Lawmakers want to know if seat belts will protect school bus riders during accidents.
The bill, which now goes to the House, also calls for an estimate on how much it would cost to buy new buses with restraint systems and how much it would cost to refit old buses.
