Fedor Statement on Passage of Senate Bill 168
February 9, 2022
Today, state Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) released the following statement after the Ohio Senate passed, on party lines, Senate Bill 168, which creates a new position of school safety designee, who would be authorized to carry firearms in a school safety zone:

“Once again, the Ohio Senate GOP leadership is trying to put more guns in our schools, even though Ohioans have told us time and time again this is not what they want. Ohioans want gun violence reduction measures in place. More guns in schools do not make our children safer. We must address the root causes of violence, teach children conflict resolution skills and use threat assessment programs for early intervention. If we, as adults, continue to use guns as a solution, children will too.”

Senate Bill 168 also eliminates the current training requirements of over 700 hours for teachers, coaches and current staff.
