HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s commission reviewing state policies following the deadly school shooting in Newtown is scheduled to hear from experts on school safety.
The 16-member panel plans to hear testimony at 9:30 a.m. Friday from experts in infrastructure design, safety and security. The speakers will include architects, a retired FBI agent and school safety and disaster management professionals.
Friday also marks the deadline for three legislative subcommittees on gun violence, mental health and school security to submit recommendations for possible legislation to legislative leaders. Lawmakers hope to vote later this month.
Malloy’s commission is also charged with making recommendations on public safety in light of the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. They will focus on school safety, mental health and preventing gun violence.
