Watch the US Senate Resolution
Each year from September-November www.CSN.org/bus hosts and distributes free resources and public service announcements to help protect 26 million students and they ride on nearly 500,000 school buses over 4 billion miles. The resolution urges broadcasters, webmasters, social media users and the public to air this Public Service Announcement:
2021 Sponsors of CSN's bipartisan resolution are Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI).
"With the school year back in full swing, there is no better time to highlight the importance of school bus safety. Whether along farm roads in Nebraska or a highway in Michigan, our nations school buses, and the professionals who operate them, help the next generation of students make it to the classroom, safely. I was proud to reintroduce this resolution and applaud its final passage in the Senate. I look forward to continuing our bipartisan work to protect students," said Senator Fischer.
"School Bus Safety Month is a reminder of the importance of keeping children safe while on their way to and from school. Families across the country trust that their children will be dropped off and picked up from school safely, each and every day – we must ensure that's the case," said Senator Peters, a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. "This is an opportunity to redouble efforts on school bus safety and highlight new safety initiatives and resources that can make our communities safer for children and families."
CSN's Chairman, Ward Leber added, "We're grateful to all 100 U.S. Senators for proving they will set politics aside to unite behind programs that increase the health, safety and transportation of all students.
Detective Dan Sperry, suffered the loss of his 11-year-old daughter when a motorist failed to stop for her bus. "I don't want other parents to pay the same price as my family. With 15 million people a year illegally passing school buses this campaign can save the lives of innocent children like our beloved Makayla."
