The National School Transportation Association hosts its annual Spring Bus-In on March 1 and 2 in Washington, D.C.  This premier two-day event will bring 35 CEO’s and senior executives of private school bus companies to Washington.  NSTA members will participate in nearly 230 individualized Congressional meetings. Participants will meet with congressional champions including House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA), Congressman Jimmy Duncan (R-TN), Congressman Sam Graves (R-MO), Congressman Lou Barletta (R-PA), Congressman Scott Perry (R-PA), Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) and others.  NSTA members will also hold committee and board meetings.

“Two days in our nation’s capital addressing our most pressing legislative issues as a group and as individuals is critical to our success as an Association,” said NSTA President Todd Monteferrario.

“We are excited to welcome our members to Washington, D.C. for a successful and productive meeting and legislative day benefiting NSTA and the private school bus industry,” said NSTA Executive Director Ronna Weber.

NSTA members will raise critical issues relating to a proposed rulemaking on safety fitness determination of motor carriers and annual funding for the Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA) program.
