U.S. Reps. Mario Díaz-Balart and Jared Moskowitz are making a bipartisan run at passing legislation to better protect schools from shooters.
Marco Rubio and Rick Scott are co-sponsoring its Senate companion.
Named for the mascot of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, the 2018 site of a school shooting that killed 17, the bill was first filed in 2019. Díaz-Balart was among its introducers.
“Sadly,” he said, “after Parkland, these targeted attacks have become more common.”
