Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that each school bus shall display at the rear of the bus a visible and readable sign, indicating the telephone number of the owner of the school bus, and indicating that the number is to be called to report erratic driving by the school bus driver. Provides that the owner of each school bus shall establish procedures for accepting these calls and for taking complaints. Provides that the procedures shall include, but not be limited to: an internal investigation of the events that led to each complaint; and a report to the complaining party on the results of the investigation and the action taken, if any.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 HB 3624 would require school districts that operate their own buses to ensure signs required by the legislation are present. It would also require any contractors providing bus service for school districts to include such signs on their buses. The number of districts and/or school bus contractors that already have the signage required by HB 3624 is unknown. There will be some costs to local districts if the school buses that they use do not currently have the signs or offer a complaint resolution system. It is impossible to estimate the costs of HB 3624, however, it is believed any costs to local districts as a result of this bill would be minimal.

 Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 HB 3624 has no fiscal impact on the State Board of Education.
