Guam - Republican senator Chris Duenas has introduced another bill aimed at helping restore and replenish the Department of Public Works' ailing fleet of school buses. "I ask my colleagues to help me lead by example show our kids that we really care and let's get this bus crisis behind us," said the policymaker.
Senator Duenas has introduced legislation that would cut the legislature's budget by $1 million and cap it at $6 million. The $1 million would be appropriated annually to DPW for the operation, purchase, lease or repair of school buses. According to the measure if enacted into law the provision for the "Big Bucks for Buses Act of 2012" would kick into effect prior to the end of Fiscal Year 2016.
