School security upgrades signed into law in Oklahoma

April 17, 2013
New laws are based on recommendations from commission formed after Sandy Hook shootings.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has signed four bills into law that are intended to keep students safe. The Oklahoman says the legislation comes from recommendations made by the Oklahoma Commission on School Security, which was formed after the Sandy Hook Elementary School gun massacre. The bills create an Oklahoma School Security Institute; require more safety drills; require schools to report discovery of firearms in school to law officers; and require schools and higher-education institutions to provide annually updated plans for protecting students, faculty and visitors from disasters and emergencies.
