CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia House of Delegates has passed a bill that would increase fines for passing a stopped school bus whose warning lights are flashing.

The House approved the bill on a 90-1 vote Thursday.

The bill now goes to the governor.

Violators would see minimum fines doubled to $500 for a first offense and $1,000 for a second offense under the bill.
