账单, named after Parkland, 佛罗里达, 射击 victims Luke Hoyer and Alex Schachter, would require the Department of Homeland Security to establish aFederal Clearinghouse on School Safety Best Practicesfor use by state and local educational and law-enforcement agencies, institutions of higher education, health professionals, and the public. And it would require DHS 至 “collect clearinghouse data analytics, user feedback on the implementation of best practices and recommendations identified by the clearinghouse, and any evaluations conducted on these best practices and recommendations.

The clearinghouse, which is already available at SchoolSafety.gov, would be codified into law with the bill’s passage.

Schumer objected to Johnson’s request, claiming on Twitter that the billcould see more guns in schools.

The truth: There were officers at the school in Texas,” Schumer tweeted. “The shooter got past them. We need real solutions—We will vote on gun legislation starting with the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

On the Senate floor, Schumer said the legislation could be considered if Republicans agree to debate on the domestic terrorism bill. Johnson responded that it’sa sad day for the United States Senate,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Johnson later tweeted: “Not surprising that the Democrat leader would lie about the bill he blocked that parents of Parkland victims have been trying to pass for years. Dems aren’t looking for solutions, they want wedge issues that they hope will keep them in power. Sick.

它的. 里克·斯科特, R-Fla。, who co-sponsored the bill, blasted Schumer asa liar and a hack.

它的. 马可·鲁比奥, R-Fla。, who also co-sponsored the bill, 发推文: “The truth: Schumer blocked a bipartisan bill the makes the school safety clearinghouse schoolsafety.gov permanent because radical left wing activists oppose it.

与此同时, the Senate is set to vote Thursday on whether to advance the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, which passed the House last week after the 布法罗大规模射击 那杀了 10 人.

That bill would require the domestic terrorism components of the DHS, 司法部 (司法部), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (联邦调查局) to jointly report on domestic terrorism, as well as createan interagency task force to analyze and combat white supremacist and neo-Nazi infiltration of the uniformed services and federal law enforcement agencies.
