Miranda's Law

Introduced

June 11, 2019

Description

Miranda’s Law seeks to;

  • Prevent dangerous drivers from obtaining employment as school bus drivers
  •  Keep unsafe school bus drivers off the road
  •  Require the Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration agency to implement and monitor a nationwide employer notification service (ENS) for buses.
  • Demand automatic notification of driver violations, beyond parking tickets, to school districts and school bus companies within 24 hours

This legislation aims to make the employer notification service mandatory for all school bus drivers across the nation. Under this law, anyone employed as a school bus driver would be required to register with the employer notification service.
