Schools chief: South Carolina schools need $95 million to buy school buses
from The State
South Carolina schools Superintendent Molly Spearman asked the Legislature for $95 million in buy 1,000 new buses. Some school children are riding in buses that are nearly 30 years old, raising concerns about reliability, safety and the cost to taxpayers for the maintenance and fuel needed to keep the aging fleet on the road. The state’s plan to phase out older buses is not working, receiving only "episodic" funding, Spearman said, asking for a one-time injection of $95 million to buy new buses.
