Should private school kids be allowed to ride public school buses?
That will be the question before the Virginia House of Delegates.

It looks like the bill to allow public school buses to transport private school students will pass the house Tuesday, February 1st.

Supporters say that parents of private school children pay taxes for education like everyone else, and should be able to use public school buses.

Opponents warned that the legislation could stretch school bus systems too thin.
