Alyssa’s Law, the Florida bill that requires all schools to have panic alarms is headed to Governor Ron DeSantis’ desk after the Florida Legislature passed the bill earlier this week, says a news report.

The HB 23/SB 70, “Alyssa’s Law” would require each public school to implement a mobile panic alert system for specified purposes beginning in a specified school year; authorize public school districts to implement additional strategies and systems for specified purposes; require the Department of Education to issue a competitive solicitation to contract for a mobile panic alert system. 

The bill is named for 14-year-old Alyssa Alhadeff, who was murdered during the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018.
