“I commend the Mooresville school officials, teachers, and police department for their vigilance. Cooperation between school officials and law enforcement ensured this plan never came to fruition. Communication, like Mooresville demonstrated yesterday, was a key discussion at the School Safety Summit I hosted last week,” said Rokita.

Drawing this line in statute not only helps tribal government, it also helps remind the executive branch of the sovereignty of state and local governments,” said Rep. Rokita.
