In the state of Alabama, lawmakers say there are not many consequences for unauthorized adults getting on school buses. But that may all change, especially after the deadly Connecticut school shooting.
A new bill is being proposed to make it a crime for adults trespassing on school buses.
The bill's sponsor, Republican Senator Cam Ward of Alabaster says if convicted, violators could face up to a year in prison.
If passed, it would also be a crime to vandalize or intend to damage to a bus.
Ward says the proposed law would make it harder for someone to harm children on a school bus.
