Resource Officers Approved By House

February 6, 2013 State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Gingery

A bill in the Wyoming House that seeks to provide each school around the state with resource officers to defend the students against intruders found itself on shaky ground earlier this week, but Teton County Representative Keith Gingery who is behind that bill says it was reconsidered yesterday and is now on its way to the Senate for consideration there.  The bill would provide specific funding and incentives for placing law enforcement personnel in the schools for safety and instruction as well.  He explains these are law enforcement officers who are already in the high school and middle school in Teton County, and this bill would help other schools across the state to follow that very successful model.  He says the bill failed primarily because of the pricetag, but he was able to get the bill reconsidered and passed on a 38 to 22 vote.  Gingery says it appears that the Senate will look at the bill favorably, especially after other bills there to allow teachers to carry guns in schools and the like did not meet with favorable consideration.

    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
