SACRAMENTO • Assemblyman Tim Donnelly formally introduced his California School Marshal Plan Wednesday. Assembly Bill 202 would authorize school districts, county offices of education and charter schools to use general purpose funds to provide training to qualified school employees who wish to carry concealed firearms on campus.

The bill would protect employees’ anonymity by exempting school marshals from the concealed weapons permit portion of the Open Records Act, according to a new release from the Donnelly’s office.

“In light of the devastating tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, we must develop a plan that will provide both true, immediate protection to our children and teachers and a deterrent to future predators,” Donnelly (R-Twin Peaks) stated in the release. “That is why I have introduced AB 202.”
