New school bus safety guidelines released

The Transportation Department rolled out new school bus safety guidelines Wednesday.

Some of the requirements include larger seat backs to keep children from being thrown around in accidents, and three-point seat belts on smaller school buses.

The new safety rules go into effect in 2011. Only new buses will be affected.
