BEIJING - The State Council's Legislative Affairs Office opened a public comment period on Sunday on draft safety regulations for school buses.

The draft, which has 59 provisions, stipulates that local governments above the county level should take "overall responsibility" for school bus safety.

It also states that education, public security, transportation and product quality supervisory bodies should properly perform their duties.

The government will establish and refine mandatory technical standards for the quality of vehicles used as school buses, the draft stated.
