School Safety Bill Passes House

The House of Representatives is passing legislation introduced by Speaker of the House Nicholas Mattiello which examines school safety in Rhode Island.  The bill would codify the existence of the Rhode Island School Safety Committee into state law and require school districts to provide the committee with safety assessments every three years for review and recommendations.  Mattiello says with the school shootings that are happening, safety assessments of school buildings cannot be ignored and he says many districts have either delayed or ignored conducting them.  The measure moves on to the Senate.
