n response to the recent school shooting at Santa Fe High School, Representative Jeff Leach issued the following statement; expressing his full commitment to legislative action:

“In the wake of the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, we must continue to pray for peace and comfort for the victims, their families and loved ones, educators, law enforcement and all who have been affected by this horrific tragedy. Going forward, we must also pray for wisdom, discernment and courage as we commit ourselves to working to ensure the safety and security of every child and educator in the State of Texas. I commend Governor Greg Abbott for initiating an immediate series of roundtable discussions with various stakeholders to deliberate on and determine public policy proposals that will ensure our schools are truly safe havens for instruction and learning. As a lawmaker and, more importantly, as a parent, I stand ready and eager to work with my colleagues in the Texas Legislature and anyone else who is committed to offering input and meaningful, substantive solutions to ensure that a tragedy like this never happens again in the Lone Star State.”
