Tennessee Lawmaker Pulls School Bus Seatbelt Bill For Year
AP Tuesday May 9, 2017

A bill that would require school buses to have seatbelts in Tennessee has been withdrawn for the year.

The Times Free Press reports that Democratic Rep. JoAnne Favors of Chattanooga late last week pulled her bill, which was inspired by a deadly school bus crash in her city in November.

The legislation would have mandated seat belts in new school buses bought after July 2019.

Fiscal estimates say the proposal would add $12.9 million in annual costs to school districts and $2.2 million in yearly state costs. The bill was changed to make the state pay the whole cost, but the money isn't currently in the state budget.

Favors believed the cost would be much cheaper. The Chattanooga bus crash in November killed six elementary school children.

Divisions in House Stall Budget Plan
AP Monday May 8, 2017

Deep divisions among majority Republicans in the Tennessee House are throwing a monkey wrench into the state's $37 billion annual spending plan.
A series of amendments introduced mostly by opponents of a gas tax hike that Gov. Bill Haslam has already signed into law caused the House version of the budget bill to become unbalanced. The chamber then recessed until Friday morning to try to sort out the process.
Democrats joined with the disgruntled faction of Republicans to help adopt the amendments that will likely be rejected by the Senate. If the two GOP-dominated chambers can't agree on a budget plan, the measure will go to a conference committee.
State lawmakers are required by the Tennessee Constitution to pass a balanced budget every year.
