School Safety Committee Video

A new Legislative Advisory Committee on School Safety and Security that was created by Speaker of the House Mac McCutcheon (R - Monrovia) and tasked with reviewing and vetting legislation involving school security issues held its organizational meeting at the Alabama State House on Tuesday.

State Rep. Terri Collins (R - Decatur) serves as chair of the advisory committee and led a similar Emergency Task Force on School Safety and Security that was formed in 2016. The earlier task force recommended several school security statutes that have since been passed into law and enacted.
