625 ILCS 5/12-807.3 new


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that a school district or a school bus company under contract with a school district shall not operate a Type I or Type II school bus manufactured after the effective date of the bill unless the bus is equipped with a set of 3-point seat belts or any other federally approved restraint system under 49 CFR 571.222 in good operating condition for each passenger seat and a rooftop safety hatch. Provides that the provision shall not apply to a school bus that is legally registered in another state and displaying valid registration plates of that state if the bus is not operated in Illinois on a regular basis and the bus is operated in Illinois in connection with a cultural, tourist, athletic, or other similar activity for students enrolled in a school located outside of Illinois. Provides that nothing in the provision shall make a school district or a school bus company liable for a passenger's failure to properly adjust or fasten a seat belt or other restraint system. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 This bill does not have a fiscal impact on the Department' s revenues or expenditures. This law requires school buses to have 3-point seat belts or any other federally approved restraint system under 49 CRF 571.222. The Department already has the school bus inspection process in place and this would not require an increase in expenditures for the program.
