The police department will be able to use this camera data as evidence should school bus stop- arm violations occur. The police department highly rec- ommended the District move forward with the installa- tion of security cameras on the school buses. For the school district, student safety starts from the minute that student boards the bus to begin their school day and doesn't end until the student exits the bus, safely at his/her home. School districts have implemented many practices over the years to increase student safety. Security cameras are the next generation of school safety technology.

Garrett Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov. School Choice A number of parents and students visited the Capitol last week to promote school choice. They were specifi- cally asking legislators to pass Senate File 240, an Educa- tion Savings Grants bill. Under the terms of the bill, par- ents of children in grades K-12 who are attending non public schools, or receiving competent private instruc- tion under chapter 299A, would be eligible to receive an "amount equal to the statewide average regular program state foundation aid per pupil in the same school year." The Democrats have killed the bill. There wasn't even a sub-committee meeting. Election Bills Primary Election Runoff. The Senate State Govern- ment Committee has passed Senate File 10, requiring a runoff election between the top two candidates in a pri- mary when no candidate receives 35% of the vote. Under present law, if no candidate receives 35% of the vote in a primary election, the candidate is selected by a conven- tion of delegates that have been elected by the political party. You will probably recall that no candidate received the 35% threshold in the Republican Congressional pri- mary for District 3 that includes Warren and Madison Counties. Electronic Voter Registration. The State Government Committee also passed on a party line vote Senate Study Bill 1152, that allows voters to register or update records with the Secretary of State, online. The voter would have to fill out the proper form and provide a valid signature from the DOT, an Election Official in or out of state or a valid registration office. Photo ID, I co-sponsored Senate File 387 that would require a photo ID to vote. Though it did not survive the funnel last week, it will be eligible for consideration next year. Gun Rights Last week the Senate Judiciary Committee passed Sen- ate Study Bill 1251 that makes several changes in the law involving permits to carry firearms and permitting the ownership of sound suppressors, commonly called si- lencers. The bill requires retrainingevery 10 yes instead of five years. It exempts military veterans from the train- ing requirements. It darifies that online training is ac- ceptable for obtaining a permit to carry. The bill removes the current age restriction for minors, allowing them to shoot a handgun while under a parent's supervision. It also makes unlawful to publicize information about those who have permits to carry. Finally all permits would be uniform throughout the state. I voted for the bill. A simi- lar bill, House Study Bill 201 has passed out of the House Judiciary Committee and is now House File 527. In the Senate Judiciary Committee, we also passed a stand-alone bill allowing the ownership of suppressors in case tle other bill is not brought up for a vote by Senator Gronstal. Funnel Week Last week was a "funnel week." Most of the bills that have not passed out of a committee in at least one cham- ber are dead for the session. This week both chambers will be considering bills that have been passed by a com- mittee. Upcoming Forum I will be at the City Hall in Norwalk, for a legislative forum SaturdaN March 14, at 9 a.m. Also present will be Representative Gustafson, Norwalk Mayor Tom Phillips and City Manager Marketa Oliver. The public is welcome and invited to ask questions or make comments on what- ever is on their mind.
