Student safety hotline still being discussed in the state legislature

Lansing
Lansing

LANJSING (WKZO) -- Some state lawmakers continue to push for a new hotline that Michigan students can call to report fellow students who they think might be planning to do something violent. State Representative Phil Potvin says the idea of the OK 2 Say hotline comes from Colorado, where something similar was implemented after the Columbine shootings.

So far, there's one in place in Cadillac, funded by private groups like the Knights of Columbus, but Potvin thinks there ought to be such a hotline for the whole state.

Potvin says it's a tool that can help Michigan students and parents feel more safe. He's hoping OK 2 Say can be approved later this year
