Gov. Hochul to sign legislation to require schools to consider adding silent safety alarms

Gov. Kathy Hochul will be signing legislation Thursday designed to improve school safety across New York.
It's called Alyssa's Law, and it requires schools to consider adding silent safety alarms as part of their comprehensive safety plan.
The law is named after Alyssa Alhadeff, one of the 17 people killed in the 2018 shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
She has family in Rockland County who have been voicing their support for the legislation.
