MoCo school officials push for bus fees
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.
