Emergency funding for school bus fuel?

An East Bay congressman is introducing a bill that would help school districts pay for the soaring cost of keeping their bus fleets running.

Democrat Jerry McNerney's relief measure would provide two years of emergency funding based on the price of a gallon of gas in any given school district.

The grants would be funded by the U.S. Transportation Department.
