A bill that extends the life of school buses in Tennessee is now headed to the governor's desk.
Both chambers passed the measure this week.
Right now, buses have to be retired once they hit 200-thousand miles or after 17 years. The new bill extends that mileage, to 400-thousand miles.
Morgan County Schools pushed for the change. Leaders said they had to retire buses that were still working fine at a cost of $100-thousand dollars a bus.
