SACRAMENTO, Calif. — State lawmakers are pushing a bill to restore school bus transportation money by cutting general purpose dollars in all districts, The Sacramento Bee reports.
Senate Bill 81, which was amended by the Senate budget committee in the state Assembly last Thursday, would replace the $248 million cut for home-to-school transportation — which SBF reported on last month — with an across-the-board reduction to all districts equal to about $42 per student. Officials said this would shift the budget burden to suburban districts that don’t offer much bus service.
