SB 59 sponsor says Snyder “not going to sign it”

LANSING – Today Progress Michigan released the following statement responding to a report from the Detroit News that Gov. Rick Snyder plans to veto Senate Bill 59, which would allow concealed weapons in public schools.

“Gov. Snyder is making the right call by rejecting this dangerous legislation,” said Zack Pohl, Executive Director of Progress Michigan. “This is a victory for school safety and common sense. We need more math and science teachers in our classrooms, not more guns. Snyder deserves credit for finally standing up to the extreme forces in his own party. Now it’s time for Lansing politicians to get their priorities straight and start working together to create jobs and improve education.”
