Michigan legislature to consider school bus seat belts

.
.

WESTLAND (WKZO) -- The Michigan legislature could consider a bill next week requiring new school buses in the state to be equipped with seat belts.

State Representative Robert Kosowski has introduced the measure with the House Transportation Committee, which he believes will help better protect students. The Westland Democrat says localities would be able to take on the additional cost through their general fund or property taxes.

Critics question whether a change in state law is necessary with one death aboard a Michigan school bus in the last five years.
