A couple of local lawmakers are behind bills in the Washington State House and Senate that would allow advertising on school buses.
State Sen. Paull Shin, D-Edmonds, has introduced a bill in the State Senate (SB 6466) that would allow advertising on school buses, with all revenue returned to the participating school district’s general fund.
State Rep. Marko Liias, D-Mukilteo, has introduced a companion bill in the House, HB 3133.
