NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) _ The family of the youngest victim in the Connecticut school shooting is recommending laws and suggesting federal funding for school security in a proposal to the White House.

One law proposed by the family of Noah Pozner would require anyone with knowledge of an “imminent threat of serious physical harm or death” to notify a law enforcement agency within 24 hours. The family also recommends giving grants to schools to improve security.

Noah’s uncle, Alexis Haller, says the proposal dated Sunday was sent to the White House. Vice President Joe Biden is heading a task force on gun violence.

Noah was one of 26 people killed last month in a massacre at a Newtown elementary school. He turned 6 just three weeks before being shot 11 times at close range.
