Senate Bill 239 sets aside up to $10 million for the next four years to build things like perimeter fencing, intercom systems and single point-of-entry buildings.

Martinez said the bill represents just one step towards better safeguarding the state's schools. She's also encouraging school districts to collaborate with local law enforcement on ways to keep kids safe.
