Fogelman urges special session for SROs

With 44 Democrat lawmakers declaring that they do not support a fix to law that has left dozens of schools without school resource officers (SROs), District 21B Rep. Marj Fogelman is urging those Democrats who remain undecided to join with Republicans in asking Gov. Tim Walz to call a special session and work together on a solution.

Fogelman, a Fulda Republican, said the new law changes what SROs are allowed to do to de-escalate aggressive or violent situations, taking away tools they can use to keep students and teachers safe. In response, over 40 law enforcement agencies have pulled SROs from schools across Minnesota.

Fogelman added that political games should not be played with student and teacher safety.
