PARKLAND, FL- In early March, both the Florida House of Representatives and the Senate voted to unanimously pass Alyssa's Law SB 70 in the State of Florida. The final step to becoming a law is the signature of Governor DeSantis.
Alyssa's Law is named for former Stoneman Douglas student Alyssa Alhadeff, who lost her life along with 16 others in the February 14, 2018, tragedy. Alyssa's Law would mandate that all public schools in the state of Florida install silent alarms that will be directly connected to local law enforcement in a state of emergency. Technology available today can also make the silent alarm system doable through smart phones. Alyssa's Law will require that every public school have an approved silent alarm system in place.
Getting Alyssa's Law SB 70 passed through both the Florida House of Representatives and the Senate was a long process led by Alyssa's mother, Lori Alhadeff, Senator Lauren Book, and State Representatives Michael Gottlieb and Dan Daley. Three months later, Alyssa's Law is still waiting to be signed into law. Senate President Bill Galvano and House of Representative Speaker Jose Oliva are holding onto the law and have not sent it to Governor DeSantis.
Lori Alhadeff is seeking the community's help in demanding action to sign and fund Alyssa's Law SB70 today.
