Implementation of Legislative Recommendations of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission: Requiring sheriffs to establish a school guardian program or contract with another sheriff’s office that has established a program under a certain condition;
The Senate has approved the bill with the lifting of a ban on volunteer teachers to become Guardians.
The votes were along party lines with the exception of… you guessed it! Senator Anitere Flores (R- Moms Demand). Even Senate President Galvano voted in favor of it and I think both term out next year.
What’s next? No idea. I need to get me some classes on the procedures and magic chants that happen in the legislature. Does the House bill enter consideration? It has not moved since April 3. If it does not matter, then it should go to the Governor for signing. If you have the answer, share it in the comments.
PS: and just when I was about to click on Publish, another update came in:
Message Received From Senate
According to the Senate Glossary, a message is
“Communication by one house to the other house concerning action taken on a bill. Each bill, and any amendments to it, is transmitted from one house to the other accompanied by a document (message) that states the action taken on the bill. The term “messages” is also used to describe the unit of the office of the Secretary of the Senate or the Clerk of the House responsible for transmitting bills to the other house.”
Kind like an announcement saying: Hey people, we are done here!”
