WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Baron Hill (D-Ind.) will introduce a presidential proclamation next month designating the third week in October of every year as National School Bus Safety Week. 

Gerry Oram, a member of the National School Bus Safety Week committee, is urging industry professionals to show their support for this effort by contacting their congressmen and congresswomen and encouraging them to vote “yes” when the bill comes to the floor.
