Statement from Rep. Swedzinski re: Safe and Secure Schools Act introduced by Gov. Mark Dayton:

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

“At first glance, there appear to be areas of common ground between the governor and the Legislature,” said Rep. Chris Swedzinski, R-Ghent. “For example, the governor’s proposal has similarities to what the House’s Education Finance Committee has been discussing on topics such as mental health and physical security. Support for school security and mental health need to be at the top of our list on this issue and that is where the House is focusing. We are working this session to build on the progress we made by providing important funding for the School Safety Center and school-linked mental health grants – these are proposals that will help address this serious issue and enjoy significant bipartisan support.”
