Schlossberg speaks on bill to promote stop-arm cameras on school buses

Rep. Mike Schlossberg (D-Lehigh) spoke with The PLS Reporter on a piece of legislation that he and Sen. Patrick Browne (R-Lehigh) have been working on to push school buses to use stop-arm cameras to capture who is illegally passing buses while they are stopped.
