FORT WAYNE, Ind. A bus crash killed an Indiana youth pastor, his pregnant wife and a chaperone last July.

Now, one lawmaker wants privately owned buses to submit inspections to state officials.

There were no mechanical issues with the bus, but Fort Wayne senator Tom Wyss says the public should know if a bus has been inspected.

He's proposing legislation which would make owners submit inspections to state officials, in order to register the vehicles.

Inspections would be carried out by government-approved mechanics.
