school bus ad bills dead

A while back I noted a few legislators' novel idea to raise revenue: ads on public school buses.

Today, Slog reports that both such bills died in committee, and will not be resuscitated.

(The initiative to legalize pot is still clinging to life support, and the ACLU refuses to chip in to cover its medical bills. Okay, that's as far as I can stretch that analogy.)

For years my mother has worked in the busing side of school and ads are not the answer to the problem of getting kids to school safely but affordably.
In our area the buses do not run optimized routes and many times several will drive by the same spot. By optimizing the routes money could be saved.
