A coalition of school and police organizations are on board with legislation to keep Michigan schools safe.
State Senators introduced bipartisan bills today.
If the bills pass, how much money would be put toward things like school resource officers and building improvements would be worked out during the budget process if the bills pass. But members of the coalition say, in an ideal world, the state would put 120 (m) million dollars toward school safety.
