The school safety bill is on Governor Scott’s desk and it’s rumored he will sign it today. That is a step forward for school safety, but the bill contains elements that neither side of the gun debate stomachs well. The legislature will be in overtime as the budget was not done in time to allow the required 72 hours before it could be passed. The session is expected to close over the weekend or Monday. If the governor signs another bill state office holders will have to resign office to run for federal office. That has long been a requirement for those seeking state and local office.

Florida Today has followed up with an extensive look into the incident that would have shaken our community. In our 7am hour today we will talk with Matt Reed, Assistant Superintendent at Brevard Schools, about this incident and how it changed Brevard Schools.
