STATEHOUSE— “The new law provides that no fee may be charged to a parent or student for transportation to and from school. I couldn’t be more pleased to have seen this new law through from start to finish. I want to help protect the budgets of Hoosier families. I know in these hard economic times, this had a huge strain on Hoosier paychecks. This law further clarifies what the current law states and protects families from transportation fees being instituted in the future.

“Many constituents contacted me about their concerns with these school bus fees being implemented in Franklin Township. It is reassuring to know that the concerns of my district were addressed and Hoosier family budgets will now be protected.”
