Senate overhauling $10M school safety proposal

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Senate Republicans are reworking a school safety measure to better protect against outside threats in response to last month’s deadly shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school.

Senate President Pro Tem David Long said today his team is looking at ways to improve the proposal Attorney General Greg Zoeller and Republican Sen. Pete Miller of Avon introduced.

The initial proposal called for $10 million to pay for more “school resource officers” in response to concern from parents and teachers over bullying and gang violence in schools.

But Long says the measure should better account for threats outside the classroom in light of the Newtown shootings that killed 20 first-graders and six adults. He says he plans to deliver more details on the new measure next month.
