LEGISLATIVE   RESOLUTION  memorializing  Governor  Andrew  M.  Cuomo  to
proclaim October 20-24, 2014, as School Bus Safety Week in the State  of
New  York,  in  conjunction  with  the observance of National School Bus
Safety Week

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize official
weeks that are set aside to increase awareness of concerns  that  affect
the lives of school children living in the State of New York; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to  memorial-
ize  Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim October 20-24, 2014, as School
Bus Safety Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the obser-
vance of National School Bus Safety Week; and
  WHEREAS, Schools around the country will  recognize  2014  School  Bus
Safety Week, celebrating the theme: "At My Stop, You Stop!"; and
  WHEREAS,  Studies  have  proven  that  the  most dangerous part of the
school bus ride for children is when they get on and off the bus; it  is
important  to  remember  to pay close attention to school buses when you
see them driving on the street and teach children how to  be  safe  when
boarding and exiting the bus; and
  WHEREAS,  From  winding country roads to busy city streets, school bus
drivers carry the most precious cargo, our children; and
  WHEREAS, School bus drivers, mechanics and other school transportation
personnel are the safest and most qualified in the State; they also care
about the kids and the community; and
  WHEREAS, School bus drivers know that parents want the peace  of  mind
which  comes from trusting the person behind the wheel of the big yellow
bus; and
  WHEREAS, School bus drivers volunteer for more training than any other
drivers in the State, and they are all required  to  pass  an  extensive
background  check  before  they receive a license to drive a school bus;
and
  WHEREAS, Getting kids to and from school safely and on schedule  makes
bus  drivers,  mechanics  and other transportation personnel an integral
part of our schools and our communities; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim October 20-24, 2014, as
School Bus Safety Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the
observance of National School Bus Safety Week; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted  to  The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.
