2023 NYSBCA Legislative Priorities
Through working with the legislature and the second floor, we will continue to be at the forefront of advocating for the right level of resources to ensure that the goal of keeping kids safe is not sacrificed on a narrow-minded budget mentality that is both penny-wise and pound foolish. Accountants and budget experts have an essential role to play, but we must always remember that, at times, these fiscal experts have a trained incapacity to understand larger and meaningful public policy goals.
NYSBCA will advocate for the following school transportation priorities (and many more) and work with the Governor, the State Legislature, and the Board of Regents to ensure they are given every consideration for the 2023 Legislative Session:
ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUS
As always, we will continue to track and monitor legislation that can potentially hurt the industry and make sure that NYSBCA always has a seat at the table with key decision-makers on these initiatives and many more. Our goal is always to educate the elected officials on the practicality and reasonableness of any proposal and to continue to be the industry experts that the elected officials come to whenever they are confronted with anything pupil transportation related.
