Bill Would Allow Advertising On School Buses

The Spokesman's Eye on Boise blog has a story about how an Idaho senator is trying to help the state's cash-strapped schools make ends meet, by proposing a bill that would allow districts to sell advertising space on school buses.

Of course, there would be restrictions on what could be advertised. Supporters of the idea say it's practically free money, but opponents argue the tactic isn't much different than dressing teachers in sponsor-emblazoned uniforms.

There are already about six states that allow this kind of marketing, but do you think Idaho should join the ranks?
