Push renewed to get advertising on school buses

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A lawmaker is trying again to get legislation passed that would allow advertising on the sides of school buses.

Democratic state Rep. Terry Mills of Lebanon is expected to present the proposal to the House Education Committee on Tuesday.

The measure would give school districts the option of selling advertising space on the exterior sides of school buses. Money generated from the ads would stay in the district, and the local school board would decide how to use it.

Mills had unsuccessfully pressed for the legislation last year. It would prohibit political advertising on the buses. Ads for tobacco and alcohol products would also be barred.
