School Bus triumph

"Three big congratulations are in order:

First, to The Post and Courier and its reporters and editors for their in-depth series informing the public about dangerously aged and under-maintained public school buses.

Second, to state Rep. Leon Stavrinakis, who read the series and took action, introducing thoughtful legislation to deal with the problem effectively.

Third, to the South Carolina General Assembly, not only for passing the legislation to provide funding to fully replace the aged bus fleet with new vehicles over the next 15 years, and then acting in a bipartisan spirit to override a veto that might kindly be characterized as unpersuasive."
