ADDENDUM

To Fiscal Note on LCO No. 7175

sHB-6449, File No. 625

AN ACT CONCERNING THE SAFETY OF PERSONS ENTERING OR EXITING A SCHOOL BUS.

The amendment increases the minimum fine in statute for failure to stop for a school bus from $100 to $450. However, it should be noted that in 2010, the average ticket issued for this offense was $260. 1 This does not change the fiscal impact of the amendment.
