A $100 million legislative package to improve school campus safety in the state was revealed last week by Governor Scott Walker and a local legislator says it does not go far enough. Walker’s safety bill would not impose any gun restrictions and State Senator Dave Hansen says the Governor’s plan is a good start but common sense gun control laws are needed.
Hansen says that everyone needs to listen to the children who staged walk-outs all around the country last Wednesday to memorialize the victims of the Parkland, Florida shooting last month and a call for action. According to the Capitol Times, Gov. Walker’s proposal focuses primarily on security upgrades and the forming of an Office of School Safety that would allocate grants to provide building improvements, school officers, and training opportunities.
