A Florida Senate committee has approved that chamber’s version of the school safety bill. The bill was approved on a 13-7 vote Tuesday evening. Sen. Bill Galvano, who is designated to become the next Senate president and is ushering through the bill, said the earliest it will be considered by the full Senate is Friday. There were a mix of Democrats and Republicans who didn’t support the bill. Democrats objected to the idea of arming teachers and Republicans opposed new restrictions on gun sales and ownership.
