LIMA, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown is pushing federal transportation officials to speed up changes called for in a bus safety measure that became law last summer.
Brown sent a letter this week to the head of the U.S. Department of Transportation asking to move more quickly on implementing driver training and operator enforcement.
His push comes after last weekend's bus crash involving a Pennsylvania college's lacrosse team that killed two and injured 23.
The Lima News (http://bit.ly/ZB82hR) reports that Brown said in the letter that tour bus safety standards are long overdue.
Brown has been pushing for the bus safety law since 2007 when a charter bus carrying Bluffton University's baseball team flipped off a Georgia overpass, killing five players along with the driver and his wife.
