JACKSON, Mississippi — Mississippi Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves is proposing a $7.5 million program to help schools hire trained and armed law enforcement officers to work on campus.
Reeves said Friday that the plan is a direct response to last month’s slayings at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and he’ll ask lawmakers to approve it this session. Individual schools could apply for $10,000 from the state, and the schools would have to spend at least that much themselves.
Personhood is back! It was introduced just a few days after the state house went into session. The war on women isn’t over. But, the people of Mississippi – the women of MS – are ready.
Here is a PDF of the new “personhood” bill.
