The nation's top highway-safety official says his agency has vowed to pursue a policy mandating that every school bus in the nation be equipped with three-point seat belts.

In his keynote address at a conference of school transportation officials last month, National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator Mark R. Rosekind announced that his agency will focus research on the effectiveness of seat belts aboard school buses.

He stopped short, however, of ordering the start of the rule-making process, a required step to institute a mandatory policy.
