A catch-all school safety bill easily passed the Indiana House of Representatives 96-2.
The bill is largely focused on school safety grant funding. Author and former school administrator Rep. Wendy McNamara (R-Mount Vernon) says the bill is in line with recommendations in last year's governor school safety report.
"Students are going to continue to walk through our doors each and every day with some sort of fear one way or another," McNamara says. "If this bill does the least bit to help alleviate some of those fears then we’re headed down the right direction."
