ANNAPOLIS, Md. (KK) – Weeks ago, Governor Hogan called for funding to increase security at schools across the state. With less than two weeks left in the 2018 Maryland General Assembly Session, Hogan is urging lawmakers to pass a bill that would mean 125 million dollars to go toward things like security cameras, metal detectors, and more.
“Our most important priority is the safety of Maryland citizens, and nothing could be more important than helping our children feel safe at school. Classrooms should never be a place of fear for our children. No mom or dad should ever have to worry when they send their kids off to school whether their son or daughter is going to come home safely,” said Governor Hogan.
The governor is also calling for 50 million dollars to pay for more school resource officers and mental health counselors.
