School Safety Moving FAST
We are committed to school safety, and this morning a Senate committee passed the final piece.
Classroom Protections were moved into HB1783, and other components were moved into 2 others.
The remaining components of my four bills have been consolidated in SB1265, renamed the “SAFE TO LEARN ACT”.
The bill has 3 major purposes:
1. Mental and Behavioral Health in Schools
2. Organizational changes to MD Center for School Safety
3. Security Measures in Schools
$40 million was attached to the bill for this year.
