      Lawmakers take aim at school security

      Alabama's public schools could get money to strengthen security. This afternoon, the House passed a bill authorizing a 50 million dollar bond. The money would be used to add security equipment to K-12 schools.

      The Public School and College Authority would issue the bond, so it would not go before voters.

      Representative Allen Treadaway, (R) Morris,{}introduced this bill in response to the Sandy Hook shooting.

      The bill{}now goes to the Senate.
