MoCo school officials push for bus fees

By Washington Post editors

The Montgomery County school board will push for legislation that would allow the county to charge students bus fees, the Washington Examiner reports.

When it meets with the county's state lawmakers Tuesday night, the board also plans to endorse bills that would give the county government authority over school building permits and allow the student school board member to vote on the capital budget.

The board voted 7 to 1 to support Sen. Richard Madaleno Jr.'s effort to lift a 1997 state law specifically forbidding bus fees in Montgomery County.

Read more about the board's push to charge fees for bus transportation in the Washington Examiner.

Could this article BE any more lame? This is from the Washington Post editors plural? No idea on which students, all students, the whole county. No info on when it would go into effect if passed, any idea of how much the fee would be, if it's for to AND from school. Seriously? They even tell you to read the Examiner article on this. I know they usually need two or more reporters to do a page and a half article (three if mor than a page and a half) but come on now. And overed: Don't you know that you live in one of the best counties and bla-blah-blah-blah, I'm sorry the spiel we get can't even come out without myself and my co-workers laughing. I was trying to give you the line about how you should be grateful that you live in MoCo and your taxes support your way of life (I seriously know that every tax payer is real tired of hearing this guff.) Keep the faith and let's all just forget to send in state taxes this year.
