LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim October 20-24, 2014, as School Bus Safety Week in the State of
New York, in conjunction with the observance of National School Bus
Safety Week

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize official
weeks that are set aside to increase awareness of concerns that affect
the lives of school children living in the State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to memorial-
ize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim October 20-24, 2014, as School
Bus Safety Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the obser-
vance of National School Bus Safety Week; and
WHEREAS, Schools around the country will recognize 2014 School Bus
Safety Week, celebrating the theme: "At My Stop, You Stop!"; and
WHEREAS, Studies have proven that the most dangerous part of the
school bus ride for children is when they get on and off the bus; it is
important to remember to pay close attention to school buses when you
see them driving on the street and teach children how to be safe when
boarding and exiting the bus; and
WHEREAS, From winding country roads to busy city streets, school bus
drivers carry the most precious cargo, our children; and
WHEREAS, School bus drivers, mechanics and other school transportation
personnel are the safest and most qualified in the State; they also care
about the kids and the community; and
WHEREAS, School bus drivers know that parents want the peace of mind
which comes from trusting the person behind the wheel of the big yellow
bus; and
WHEREAS, School bus drivers volunteer for more training than any other
drivers in the State, and they are all required to pass an extensive
background check before they receive a license to drive a school bus;
and
WHEREAS, Getting kids to and from school safely and on schedule makes
bus drivers, mechanics and other transportation personnel an integral
part of our schools and our communities; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim October 20-24, 2014, as
School Bus Safety Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the
observance of National School Bus Safety Week; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.
