SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah lawmakers are considering a bill that would cut bus service to thousands of junior high and high school students.
House Bill 166 increases the distance that students must live from school -- from two miles to three miles -- before the state will reimburse school districts for busing.
If the measure passes, at least half of secondary school bus routes could be cut for a savings of as much as $4.8 million.
The House unanimously approved the measure Wednesday. It now moves to the Senate.
