(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Gilbert "Whip" L. Wilson (D-Camden/Gloucester), Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen) and Connie Wagner (D-Bergen) to create a task force charged with making recommendations to improve security and makes schools safer was approved Thursday by the General Assembly.
"The Newtown shooting showed us that evil can strike anywhere, even in a school filled with small, defenseless children," said Wilson. "This bill helps ensure a safe and secure learning environment for students and staff members by creating a special task force charged with developing strategies that will help address school safety issues and hopefully prevent another senseless tragedy."
