MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 6, 2020 09:23 AM
From: Representative Clint Owlett
To: All House members
Subject: School Bus Driver Industry Analysis
 
In the near future, I plan on introducing a resolution requiring the Joint State Government Commission to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the current school bus driver industry and provide recommendations as to how the Commonwealth can effectively address the shortage of school bus drivers.

Across the Commonwealth, school districts and school bus companies have been struggling tremendously to hire and retain a sufficient number of qualified school bus drivers. Simply put, if a school district is not able to provide adequate transportation to and from school, then how can we as a Commonwealth ensure the quality education, we strive to offer our children is being provided?

Specifically, my resolution would task the Joint State Government Commission to establish an advisory committee to provide recommendations as to how the Commonwealth can effectively address the shortage of school bus drivers. The advisory committee would be comprised of the following:
  • Representatives of the Department of Education
  • Representatives of the Department of Transportation
  • Representatives of the Pennsylvania School Bus Association.
I hope that you will support my upcoming resolution that will address this unfortunate issue that impacts many children across the Commonwealth.
