CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A bill has been introduced that would establish drug-free zones at school bus stops in the state.
Under the proposed measure, H.B. 3105, these zones would carry the same penalties as violations of similar drug-free zones on school property, including longer prison sentences for those who attempt to sell illegal drugs within the zones.
Additionally, the bill was amended to increase the penalties for motorists who illegally pass school buses that are loading or unloading children.
Already passed by the House, the bill is currently under consideration in the Senate Education Committee.
