The amendment scheduled to be vote on in the late afternoon would require the courts to consider other remedies before ordering any busing. And then busing would be limited to the next closest school to the Pupil s Home.

Before the busing vote the Senate is scheduled to dispose of another highly controversial issues How to distribute about $2 billion annually in Federal education Aid funds to the nations school districts. The Issue was debated through a Long session tuesday but the vote put Over until today
