Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §18A-2-10a, to read as follows:

§18A-2-10a. Medical qualifications for school bus operators.
Notwithstanding any provision of this code to the contrary, a person employed or seeking employment as a school bus operator may not be dismissed from or denied employment or rendered ineligible for employment as a school bus operator for reason that the person currently has been diagnosed or has a past history of having the disease of diabetes mellitus requiring insulin, as long as the person is under the care of a physician for the disease, is adhering to all treatment prescribed by his or her physician and also meets all of the requirements to be eligible for a commercial driver's license in this state.
