WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The American Bus Association submitted testimony to the House of Representatives on April 29 telling lawmakers the federal/state partnership for motorcoach inspections is “broken,” which potentially could put passengers at risk.

The testimony from ABA President Peter Pantuso was formally submitted to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure’s Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.
