NY Senate Passes Bill Prohibiting Registered Sex Offenders From Operating a School Bus

The New York Senate passed a bill prohibiting registered sex offenders from operating a school bus or passenger bus.
ALBANY, N.Y. -  The New York Senate passed a bill prohibiting registered sex offenders from operating a school bus or passenger bus. 

A press release says the bill would prohibit the Department of Motor Vehicles from issuing or renewing a commercial driver's license to a registered sex offender. 

 “Registered sex offenders should not be operating a school bus or a passenger bus, plain and simple. Bus operators come in contact with vulnerable individuals every day.  To give a registered sex offender a license and access to potential victims is dangerous and makes zero sense. This legislation fixes the problem,” Senator Carl Marcellino (R-Syosset) said. 

The bill now heads to the New York Assembly.
