Students in Arizona will soon have a hotline to call to report school violence. The hotline got approval from a Senate panel yesterday.
The idea behind the hotline is to prevent the next school shooting by allowing students to anonymously report dangerous activities and threats.
Representative Paul Boyer from Phoenix says a similar system was set up in Colorado shortly after the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School.
Next the bill goes to the Senate Education Committee as lawmakers work to try and find the proper funding.
