State Rep. Chad Campbell introduced a series of bills Thursday that will enact the provisions of a $100 million school and community safety plan he recently announced.
The plan would increase funding for the school resource officer's program, mental health treatment and require background checks for all buyers at Arizona gun shows.
Campbell, the leading Democrat in the state House of Representatives, announced the plan Jan. 9 and said it will be paid for by eliminating a tax credit for private school tuition that is popular among majority Republicans, closing tax loopholes and tapping into the state's budget surplus.
Campbell also proposed tripling the number of school counselors over the next three years and establishing a school safety fund for facility upgrades such as cameras, security, etc., that would be controlled at a local level.
Campbell said he worked with law enforcement, mental healthcare providers and educators to develop the legislative package.
Here are the bills he introduced Thursday as part of his broader plan:
HB 2374 - school safety program; funding; expansion
HB 2375 - behavioral health services; appropriation
