Florida Senate taking up high profile issues with school safety

Florida Senate taking up high profile issues

SARASOTA (WWSB) - The Florida Senate will take up one of the highest-profile issues of the 2019 legislative session tomorrow.

The Senate to consider proposals designed to bolster school safety. This will be a follow-up to school-safety legislation passed last year after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

The bill has drawn controversy because it would expand a school “guardian” program to allow trained classroom teachers to be armed.
