Mar 8, 2018, Atlanta Journal Constitution: Georgia House panel advances budget with funds for school security https://politics.myajc.com/news/state--regional-govt--politics/georgia-house-panel-advances-budget-with-funds-for-school-security/eNvt7eXe54wQhWAFywr9NP/ Georgia legislative leaders are proposing funding $16 million in grants to local districts to beef up security following last month’s massacre at a Florida school. House budget writers included $8 million in the spending plan for fiscal 2019 — which begins July 1 — that won committee approval Wednesday. House Appropriations Chairman Terry England, R-Auburn, is hoping the Senate ups it to $16 million. … Both the Deal and House proposals also include more money to fund growth in child welfare and mental health programs, and autism and nursing home services.
