A stripped-down school security proposal that would start a state grant program to help school districts hire police officers and buy safety equipment has been approved by the Indiana House. Representatives voted 86-6 Monday in favor of the bill after provisions that would've required all public schools to have gun-carrying employees during school hours were pulled from it last week. The Senate must still agree to what the house has proposed.
The Senate has proposed spending $10 million a year on the safety grant program.
Vigo County Schools didn’t wait for the state and have already teamed with the County and City government to pay for armed guards in every Vigo County School.
