This bill provides assistance to school districts and private contractors who install video cameras on their school buses to assist in the enforcement of P.L.1942, c.192 (C.39:4-128.1), the law which prohibits motor vehicles from passing a school bus while it is stopped to pick up or discharge passengers. Under the provisions of the bill, school districts would be eligible for grants from the "New Jersey School Bus Safety Fund" and private contractors would be eligible for tax credits against their tax liability under the corporation business tax. The grant moneys are to come from a portion of the fine and penalty moneys assessed against motor vehicle operators who are ticketed for unlawfully passing a school bus that is stopped to pick-up or discharge passengers. The bill provides that one-half of all the moneys collected for this offense be paid into the "New Jersey School Bus Safety Fund." School districts interested in receiving a grant are to apply to the Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission. To the greatest extent practicable, the chief administrator shall apportion the moneys to school districts located in the county in which the offense occurred and the fine and penalty moneys were collected. The tax credit is to be equal to the actual costs the private contractor incurred in purchasing and installing the video cameras. The bill specifies, however, that a private contractor may not receive a credit that exceeds the total amount of his tax liability under the corporation business tax.
