Legislative findings
Transportation (TRA) CHAPTER 61-A, ARTICLE 9-B
§ 215. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds and declares
that the state has a responsibility to insure the safety of public
transportation systems. Further, there exists a need for an independent,
investigative and advisory body to examine the causes of accidents on
public transportation systems and make recommendations in order to
prevent the occurrences of accidents and promote the safety of the
public. Therefore, this article establishes a public transportation
safety board to provide this protection and insure the health and safety
of the citizens of the state who use public transportation facilities.
