Congresswoman Elise M. Stefanik has partnered with two representatives to introduce a set of bills aimed at enhancing limousine safety, coming after 20 people died in a single crash last year.

Ms. Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, joined by Congressman Paul Tonko, D-Amsterdam, and Congressman Antonio Delgado, D-Rhinebeck, announced the legislation package Thursday. The representatives say the bills would ensure modified limousines meet federal safety standards, strengthen inspection requirements and launch research to guide further updates to limousine safety regulations.
