BILL NUMBER:S2371

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to affixing school
district
websites on school buses

PURPOSE:
The purpose of the legislation is to permit
school districts
to affix their websites on their fleet of school buses.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends section 1223-a of the vehicle and
traffic law to allow school buses to have the uniform resource
locator (URL) of the school district's website printed in three inch
bold type on the rear of the buses.

EXISTING LAW:
Current law only permits school districts to have their
phone numbers affixed to the rear of school buses.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently, school districts are only permitted to affix
their phone numbers on the rear of their fleet of school buses. With
all of the recent advancements in technology and communication, many
school districts have created their own websites, which have become
an increasingly important tool for facilitating open communication
between the districts and residents. This legislation will provide
members of the community with yet another means of contacting their
school district should they so desire. It is important to note that
this legislation permits, but does not require, a school district to
add their website to the school buses in its fleet School districts
should be permitted to affix their websites on the back of their
school buses if they so choose.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.6826 of 2010

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
