State lawmakers’ new school safety committee aims to hold its first meeting in March and identify both short- and long-term steps to protect schools, a committee co-chairman told The Daily Advance Friday.
On Tuesday, House Speaker Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, named 40-plus representatives to the House Select Committee on School Safety. He created the committee to “seek expert input on securing the state’s classrooms and education facilities in the wake of a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 students and faculty dead and more than a dozen wounded.”
