Spring Valley Democrat pushing bill regarding safety at bus stops

Posted by wlpo on March 20, 2015

Do you worry about your kid’s safety at their bus stop?

State Representative Frank Mautino is backing a new law that requires schools to tell parents if registered sex offenders live within 500 feet of a school bus stop. Right now sex offenders can’t live within 500 feet of a school, park or playground but there’s nothing in law saying they can’t live close to a bus stop.

Mautino says there are 185 registered sex offenders in La Salle County and 38 in Bureau County.
