STATEMENT FROM COMMISSIONER OF HIGHER EDUCATION ON HB 1083

2/7/2018 - Jackson, Miss.

"The safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors on our university campuses is a top priority for the Board of Trustees and University leaders. HB 1083 compromises our ability to protect and ensure the safety of those on our campuses because it nullifies and prohibits any policies and/or authority to designate sensitive areas of campus where weapons should not be allowed."

-- Dr. Glenn Boyce, Commissioner of Higher Education
