PARKLAND, FL- "Alyssa's Law" made significant progress on Tuesday, passing the 2nd Senate Committee meeting. The Florida Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Education okayed the Alyssia's Law legislation (SB 70) and adopted a strike-all amendment, which means that all schools in Florida would be required to the install the alert system, which will be called "Alyssa's Alert."

The amendment states “each public school, including charter schools, shall implement an interoperable mobile panic alert system capable of connecting diverse emergency services technologies to ensure real-time coordination between multiple first responders.”

The bill now moves to its 3rd and final committee stop at the Appropriations Committee on Thursday.
