The committee is set to discuss the proposal at a Wednesday hearing. The bill says any school board starting what is called a 'school sentinel program' would first have to consult with local law enforcement agencies. In addition, the bill says that a school board could not make a school employee carry a gun unless that employee consents. The Legislature is expected eventually to consider another measure that seeks to prevent people found to be mentally ill and dangerous from carrying guns.
