|Subject:||Use of Drug Forfeiture Dollars for School Safety/Security|
|I will be introducing legislation to encourage the use of drug forfeiture dollars for school safety and security measures.
District Attorneys' offices across Pennsylvania are collectively in possession of millions of drug forfeiture dollars. Those dollars are a non-tax resource that are to be utilized to combat crime.
I believe our local communities should be encouraged to dedicate part of these resources to school safety and security. While we can all agree this proposal alone is not the only solution, I believe it can be a helpful asset in a larger, more comprehensive effort to better use government resources to ensure the safety of our children and the security of our schools.
I hope you will join me in cosponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as HB428
