WASHINGTON, D.C. — Members of the National School Transportation Association (NSTA) have convened at Capitol Hill for the association’s annual Spring Bus-In on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The event is bringing 35 CEOs and senior executives of private school bus companies to Washington. NSTA members will participate in nearly 230 individualized congressional meetings.
Participants will meet with numerous congressional representatives, including House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.), Congressman Jimmy Duncan (R-Tenn.), Congressman Sam Graves (R-Mo.), Congressman Lou Barletta (R-Pa.), Congressman Scott Perry (R-Pa.) and Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-N.Y.).
NSTA members will also hold committee and board meetings.
"Two days in our nation's capital addressing our most pressing legislative issues as a group and as individuals is critical to our success as an association," NSTA President Todd Monteferrario said.
"We are excited to welcome our members to Washington, D.C., for a successful and productive meeting and legislative day benefiting NSTA and the private school bus industry," NSTA Executive Director Ronna Weber said.
NSTA members will raise key issues relating to a proposed rulemaking on safety fitness determination of motor carriers and annual funding for the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act program.
