(g) Developing best practices and protocols related to school safety incident response.

This legislation establishes a school security fund to train personnel in the event of school emergency situations such as dealing with active shooters. It also provides guidance to regions and localities regarding the matter. The bill provides for schools to update their capital infrastructure to help avoid these tragedies among other things.

If no one has anything to add here, I'm bringing this bill to a vote. Otherwise, Senators have 24 hours to object.

Changing to NAY, after some thinking, there is no implementation plan for this bill, it's a half complete bill and the sponsor should be ashamed of himself for rushing it to a vote.

Abstain. I support this bill in spirit and would vote in favor of it, however, like my fellow colleagues had noted, it doesn't have an implementation plan currently.
