A key Senate committee has killed a bill that would allow districts to choose whether up to three employees could carry a licensed, concealed-carry handgun in any given school.

According to a news release from the Republican Senate office, the bill, SB 230, was tabled indefinitely in Senate Finance on a vote of 6 to 3, meaning the committee will not reconsider the bill this session.

The bill was sponsored by Senator Sue Wilson Beffort, a Republican from Sandia Park.
