Senate schedules limo safety hearing for next week

ALBANY New York's safety regulations for limousines and buses will be examined next week in Albany during a public hearing convened by the state Senate.

It is the first of at least two planned hearings by the Senate Transportation Committee, which is expected to hear from the transportation industry, safety experts and family members of victims from last fall's fatal stretch limousine crash in Schoharie County.

The May 2 hearing is scheduled to take place a month after state lawmakers and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo approved new vehicle safety regulations in the budget.

"By banning u-turns, making information to consumers more accessible, and holding non-compliant companies more accountable, we took the first steps toward reforming an industry that has caused one senseless tragedy after another in our state," said Sen. Tim Kennedy, a Buffalo-area Democrat who leads the chamber's transportation committee.
