A bill that would abolish the troubled busing agency Dallas County Schools will get a hearing in the Texas Legislature nest week.
State Sen. Don Huffines, R-Dallas, wants to remove the current DCS board and phase out the agency.
DCS is mired in a financial crisis, and over the last six months an NBC 5 investigation has exposed serious safety concerns, including hundreds of school bus drivers running red lights.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Huffines's bill goes up for debate in the Senate Education Committee on Tuesday.
Huffines sent a letter to DCS Board President Larry Duncan, asking him to appear at the hearing to answer questions.
A new acting superintendent at DCS says the agency should be given more time to restructure and should not be shut down.
