GOP leaders in the House are preparing a legislative package aimed at bolstering school safety in reaction to the shooting this month at a Florida high school that left 17 dead and reopened a national debate over guns.
“We’re gonna do a lot on school safety,” Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, told The Hill.
He said the effort will be aimed at improving safety on school campuses, but will also include some gun-related measures.
“Part of that’s gun stuff, but part of that’s school safety stuff,” he said.
“You may see something introduced this week, but obviously you won’t see it passed this week,” Stivers told The Hill, referring to the shortened workweek in the House. “But pretty quickly. You’ll see it soon.”
