Haslam Likely to Sign School Safety Bill
A proposal that would allow school districts to allow people with police training to be armed in schools is headed to the governor for his consideration. The measure was moved on Thursday evening after the House voted 72-15 to concur with changes made by the Senate. The proposal would allow schools to hire retired law enforcement officers after they meet certain requirements, such as completing a 40-hour school security course. The bill would make information about which teachers are armed or which schools allow the guns confidential to anyone but law enforcement. Haslam has included $34 million in his budget for local government officials to use on their priorities, which could include security measures. Gov. Bill Haslam is expected to sign the legislation.
