Create the environment for these conversations

Article posted on February 26, 2018

We have an Education Committee Hearing scheduled for this Friday at 10:00; the subject is school safety.  I was asked about the hearing today by a newspaper and said that this will be helpful in gathering information, but no legislation has been discussed specifically.  There are bills that have been introduced since the Florida shooting, but none have been worked on with the committee staff.  One idea that is in the process of being introduced is to add security discussions at school board meetings to the list of subjects eligible for executive session.  It makes sense to keep this information about where the weaknesses are in the system away from people who could use the information for evil.  There are lots of common sense ideas that can be beneficial, and I hope the hearing creates the environment in the legislature for these conversations.
