“The passage of the Oklahoma Commission on School Security (OCSS) bills today illustrates the extraordinary commitment Oklahoma's policy makers have to our students. Legislation that was passed today and is now being sent to the Governor for signature also required vision by legislative leadership and a commitment by the professionals that served on the OCSS.
“I cannot think of the last time a reform package of legislation received not only bipartisan support but was passed by both chambers with over 90%-100% approval. It may have not happened ever in state history. I applaud the passage of the legislation today but I'm also reminded that we must as a state continually address school security. No one policy or bill can prevent all evil.”
