This is the 40th anniversary of school bus safety week, being celebrated from October 15 - 21, 2006.
This year is also special as we thank Representative John Duncan (R-Tenn) and the United States House of
Representatives for unanimously passing House Resolution 498, which honors the goals and ideas of
School bus Safety Week.
