Bill Caption

Relating to school marshals for private schools.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

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.
