Rep. Budd said in a statement:

“No parent should have to worry about the safety of their child at school. That’s why every school in America needs to have sound safety measures including an armed School Resource Officer on duty every day. My bill would make it easier for veterans and retired police officers to continue their service to their community by protecting students and teachers as SROs.”
