Bus PAC Contribution

The important role that a Political Action Committee (PAC) can have in an organization is often underestimated. Confusion frequently stems from the unfamiliarity of the definition of a PAC and its responsibilities.

    • A PAC is simply a group of individuals who pool their financial resources to help elect candidates to public office — men and women who share the group's interests and concerns about public policy issues.

    • PACs at the federal and state levels play a positive role in strengthening representative government by getting more people involved in the political process.

    • PACs provide people, many who have never done anything more political than vote, a convenient and meaningful way to exercise their citizens' rights.

Please consider a generous donation to our political action campaign (PAC) this year. We anticipate an extremely active legislative session where we will have to be both proactive and reactive on a number of fronts. PAC is an important way your company can help with this effort.

2023 Legislative Wins

  1. Instead of amending Commissioner Regulations for Pupil Transportation Contracts (8 NYCRR 156.1–156.5) in order to add an electric vehicle rate to existing contracts/ ability to adjust the base price for the vehicle—NYSBCA learned that we need to amend the NYS Education Law instead. As a result, we successfully drafted, introduced, and lobbied a bill in both houses: AB7122/ SB 6754A which amends the education law in relation to contract cost adjustments in the middle of contract terms for school districts transportation contracts due to increased costs associated with the transition to zero-emission buses. NYSBCA’s sponsors are NYS Assemblymember Jean-Pierre as well as NYS Senator Kennedy to champion this initiative (AB 7122 / SB 6754A). At the same time, NYSBCA successfully blocked an overly restrictive legislative proposal by SED in regard to contract modification. We continue to work together with SED, the Governor’s office, as well as the legislature to get this across the finish line.

  2. NYS adoption of the under the hood waiver- School Bus Only Restriction

  3. Successfully had the chair of the education committee introduce our sales tax exemption proposal for zero-emission school buses purchases and parts: AB 8010/ SB 5524)
