On Wednesday, March 4, Senate Bill 237 was passed unanimously by the Colorado State Senate. It is now on its way to the House, where it awaits a committee assignment.
Introduced by State Representative Kevin Lundberg (R-15), SB 237 was a response the story recently reported in our “Outrage of the Week” section. Marie Marrow was expelled from Cherokee Trail High School for having non-operative prop rifles, which she was using during drill team rehearsals. Representative Lundberg’s bill is designed to bring common sense to Colorado’s school expulsion statue.
SB 237 would allow the school to use discretion, in cases such as Marie Marrow’s, rather then the mandatory expulsion which is currently in place.
SB 237 has yet to be assigned to a House Committee but please continue to check your email and www.NRAILA.org for further updates.
