INDIANAPOLIS – The following statement was issued today by Indiana House Democratic Leader Terry Goodin of Austin in reaction to the release of school safety recommendations by Gov. Holcomb’s working group on the issue:

“I applaud Gov. Holcomb’s initiatives in regard to school safety. While the recommendations are not groundbreaking, they address issues that should be a matter of course to be realized within our schools. They are also initiatives that Democrats in the Indiana House and Senate have advocated for years.

“We welcome the governor’s strong commitment to this issue and its prioritization. We, as Democratic state representatives, stand ready to work with him and our Republican colleagues to ensure the safety of every school child in the state of Indiana.”
