Bill would mandate video cameras in school buses

ATLANTA (AP) - Legislation introduced in the Georgia House would mandate that all school buses be equipped with video cameras so that drivers can monitor student passengers.

The bill from state Rep. Jay Neal, a Republican from LaFayette, would require that all buses purchased on or after Jan. 1, 2012 which are used to transport children must be equipped with a video camera.

By July 1, 2014, all such buses must have cameras aboard, under the bill.

The legislation did not address the costs involved with the proposed new mandate.
