Missouri House passes school bus ad bill
By Elizabeth Crisp
The Missouri House today approved a bill that will allow private ads inside and on the exterior of buses - a move that supporters say will generate money for cash-strapped districts.
The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
“It’s a good bill that will help our schools generate revenue,” said Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar.
Other states already have embraced the bus idea.
