This afternoon in Washington, D.C., a Senate subcommittee examines the topic of intercity bus regulation. The issue has become a national priority in the aftermath of the deadly bus accident in the Bronx earlier this month (many of the victims were Chinatown residents).
The hearing will focus on why the Department of Transportation has not implemented recommendations made by the National Transportation Safety Board. Those recommendations include: requiring seatbelts for all passengers, windows and exits that are easier to open in the event of an emergency and stronger roofs.
Government safety officials will testify. You see the complete witness list here.
