Hutchinson Calls for "Reasonable Standards" for School Buses

MAY 12, 2006 - Posted at 8:16 a.m. CST

 

EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Asa

Hutchinson is calling for ``reasonable standards'' for the time

spent riding school buses by students living in rural and Delta

communities.

Hutchinson made a pitch for bus-ride standards three days after

the state ordered Paron High School to close, a move that could

mean long bus rides for students traveling to school at Bryant.

Hutchinson also called for the state to complete a study on

isolated schools and the impact of transportation times. The study

was authorized by the Legislature last year.

Hutchinson faces no Republican opponent in the May 23rd primary.

Attorney General Mike Beebe also is unopposed for the Democratic

nomination.
