One of the smallest and most overlooked items in New York's new state budget just could be a life saver. WAMC's Dave Lucas reports...
Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Legislature agreed to devote $1 million to change the way buses are inspected in New York following a bloody year on the road.
Instead of inspecting every bus several times a year, the state will switch to a "performance based" system in which companies with the worst safety records will be inspected more.
All companies will still get at least two inspections a year, even those with top safety records.
