School safety bill hearing is today

March 6, 2013

LINCOLN – A bill that would give Nebraska public school districts the budget flexibility to improve and install safety measures in school buildings will be heard by the Legislature’s Revenue Committee on Thursday, March 7.

Omaha Sen. Rick Kolowski introduced LB346, which would allow school boards, with a two-thirds majority vote, to levy one cent above the existing $1.05 levy limit to fund school security measures. What form such measures might take will be decided at the local level by each school board, each school district.
