Emergency rules are necessary in order to comply with requirements added to W.S. 21-13-320, which are effective July 1, 2019. The statute requires the WDE to define procedures for and conditions under which school districts may procure student transportation vehicles, establish a mileage and age replacement schedule for student transportation vehicles, and establish a competitive bid process for student transportation vehicle procurement. Regular rules will be promulgated at the same time, giving the public an opportunity to provide comment.
