Indiana: School Security Reform Bill Passes House Committee, Goes to House Floor for Consideration

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Contact your state Representative today in support of Senate Bill 1

 Today, the Indiana House Ways and Means Committee passed Senate Bill 1 by a 16-7 vote.  Sponsored by state Senator Pete Miller (R-24), SB 1 would establish a School Resource Officer (SRO) program in schools and sets forth their duties and responsibilities.  This legislation would provide schools an effective asset in protecting our children and increasing safety.  On multiple occasions, an armed presence in schools has prevented or even stopped a shooting.  SB 1 would better outfit our schools to defend against future threats.  This measure passed in the Indiana Senate by a 43-7 vote on February 25.

SB 1 would help increase safety in schools and would supply a measure of defense that would further keep our children out of harm’s way.  It is important that you tell your state Representative to support Senate Bill 1.

SB 1 is now eligible for action on the House floor.  While a date for consideration has not been set, your NRA-ILA will keep you informed as information becomes available.  In the meantime, please contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support Senate Bill 1.

Contact information for your state legislators can be located here.
