#SB7030 is up for final passage in the House right now. You can watch here thefloridachannel.org

This will be the final stop before the bill reaches the governor's desk.

As with yesterday's #SB7070 this bill will have structured debate 15 min. per side.

Rep. @CindyPoloFL103 continues by saying "We have forgotten the impact that this new world has on our children...I don't believe that having more weapons in classrooms gets it right." Rep. Polo also apologizes for "losing focus" last night during questioning.
