New state law impacts bus drivers
The requirements for driving a school bus will be a bit tougher beginning today, just in time for the new school year.
Louisiana House Bill 507 — signed into law by Gov. Bobby Jindal — deals with convictions and violations relating to driving under the influence.
Previously an individual who wished to be a bus driver could continue being a bus driver if he or she would have been disqualified from driving a school bus for certain convictions or violations relating to driving under the influence if he or she had a school bus license at the time of the conviction or violation.
