85(R) - 2017
Relating to school marshals for private schools.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
There is no provision in current law allowing private schools to hire a school marshal. This bill would permit private schools to hire a school marshal at a ratio of one marshal per 200 students.
Vote Recommendation Notes
Because this is a permissive program that would allow private schools a method to better protect their students, SB 444 affirms our principles of limited government, individual liberty, property rights, and personal responsibility. We support this bill.
