New York law puts more limits on who can be hired as school bus drivers

Aug. 17, 2011
Persons convicted of certain crimes will be prohibited from working as bus drivers

From The New York Times: New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has signed legislation that makes it more difficult for ex-cons to drive school buses. The law adds 26 types of felony convictions that will make a person ineligible to drive a school bus, and raises the number of crimes for which a conviction would warrant a permanent ban from school-bus driving to 58. The law also makes the ban permanent rather than temporary for those convicted of vehicular manslaughter, aggravated vehicular homicide or promoting prostitution.
