The Secretary of Education intends to create 14 DE Admin. Code 1105 Standards for School Buses Placed in Production on or after January 1, 2017. This regulation is being created to establish new standards for buses built after January 2017, specifically as it relates to current equipment, production and safety features.
Notice of the proposed regulation was published in the News Journal and the Delaware State News on September 1, 2016, in the form hereto attached as Exhibit "A". One comment was received from Geoffrey Wolk, a sales representative of Wolfington Body (bus) Company. He suggested that the regulation allow for stainless steel mirror supports instead of the standard black metal mirror supports as these can rust as the bus ages. The Department considered the written comments and decided not to make any changes at this time. The Department believes that the proposed requirement that mirror supports be painted is more appropriate for safety reasons. Painted mirror supports reduce the chance of glare from any reflective part of the bus, and thus may be safer than stainless steel.
The Secretary finds that it is appropriate to create 14 DE Admin. Code 1105 Standards for School Buses Placed in Production on or after January 1, 2017 in order to establish new standards for buses built after January 2017, specifically as it relates to current equipment, production and safety features.
For the foregoing reasons, the Secretary concludes that it is appropriate to create 14 DE Admin. Code 1105 Standards for School Buses Placed in Production on or after January 1, 2017. Therefore, pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122, 14 DE Admin. Code 1105 Standards for School Buses Placed in Production on or after January 1, 2017 attached hereto as Exhibit "B" is hereby created. Pursuant to the provision of 14 Del.C. §122(e), 14 DE Admin. Code 1105 Standards for School Buses Placed in Production on or after January 1, 2017 hereby created shall be in effect for a period of five years from the effective date of this order as set forth in Section V. below.
The text of 14 DE Admin. Code 1105 Standards for School Buses Placed in Production on or after January 1, 2017 created hereby shall be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit "B", and said regulation shall be cited as 14 DE Admin. Code 1105 Standards for School Buses Placed in Production on or after January 1, 2017 in the Administrative Code of Regulations for the Department of Education.
The actions hereinabove referred to were taken by the Secretary pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122 on October 13, 2016. The effective date of this Order shall be ten (10) days from the date this Order is published in the Delaware Register of Regulations.
