A deal between the New York State Assembly and Senate has been reached on a series of bills to strengthen limo safety.

This comes more than a year after 20 people died in the Schoharie limousine crash.


Senator Tim Kennedy sent NewsChannel 13 the details of the deal. The measures include seat belt requirements, training, and mandating commercial driver's licenses and drug and alcohol testing for drivers.
