The controversial School District Empowerment Program bill, HB 3156 is scheduled for consideration by the Senate Education Committee on Monday morning while that afternoon the House Education Committee will consider allowing school personnel to carry firearms on campus.
The school district empowerment is the counterpart to Sen. Clark Jolley’s SB 1187 which the Senate approved on March 10. This bill would allow schools to vote to deregulate.
The firearms on campus bill, SB 1036, would enable the school board and superintendent to designate a school employee to attend armed security guard or reserve police offer certification programs. The bill also allows the school district to pay for said training, including meals and lodging. (As if we have money sitting around waiting to be spent…)
