Kentucky House Passes School Safety Bill
In early 2018, tragedy struck Marshall County High School when a shooting incident took the lives of two students. Since then, the Kentucky General Assembly created a bipartisan group to improve school safety.
Lawmakers traveled all over the state to listen to teachers, students, administrators, law enforcement and mental health professionals. The legislation was soon moving ahead.
Senate Bill 1 was passed unanimously on Wednesday in the House 96-3. The bill will now be sent back to the Senate to agree to the changes made in the House before it is sent to the Governor.
