Senate Transportation Committee Considering Limousine Safety Legislation

The end of this year's state legislative session is just weeks away, and limousine safety is expected to be an important topic.

Next week, bills will begin working their way through the Senate Transportation Committee.

The legislation will call for seatbelts to be required in altered vehicles that can carry at least nine people.

Drug and alcohol testing would also be mandatory for drivers and the state would be allowed to impound vehicles with safety issues.

Limo safety has been aan issue since a crash in Schoharie last fall killed 20 people.
