School Transportation Bill Heads to Governor's Desk

Posted: Updated:

A bill that provides a tax exemption for companies who contract with schools for transportation services, now awaits the governor's signature.

Governor Barbour must act on the bill by Wednesday.

The bill would add the companies to a property tax exemption already provided to federal and state vehicles, as well as school district-owned vehicles.

According to the Mississippi Department of Education, nine school districts in the state out source their transportation needs.
