AUSTIN, TEXAS/MARCH 12, 2021-STATE REPRESENTATIVE BROOKS LANDGRAF PRESENTED HOUSE BILL 103-ACTIVE SHOOTER ALERT BILL DURING A HEARING OF THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON HOMELAND SECURITY AND PUBLIC SAFETY ON THURSDAY. THE COMMITTEE UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED THE BILL, PASSING IT ON FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE FULL HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

REPRESENTATIVE LANDGRAF CRAFTED HB 103 AFTER WORKING WITH FAMILIES OF VICTIMS FROM THE AUGUST 31ST, 2019 MASS SHOOTING, WHEN A MOBILE GUNMAN KILLED 7 PEOPLE AND INJURED 25 OTHERS ACROSS ODESSA AND MIDLAND. LEILAH HERNANDEZ A 15-YEAR-OLD ODESSA HIGH STUDENT WAS THE YOUNGEST VICTIM KILLED ON AUGUST 31ST.

HOUSE BILL 103 WOULD REQUIRE THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY TO DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT THE ACTIVE SHOOTER ALERT SYSTEM. DPS WOULD ACTIVATE THE ALERT SYSTEM ON THE REQUEST OF LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES WHO DETERMINES THERE IS AN ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION.

(JESSE PORRAS, FAMILY MEMBERS AFFECTED BY THE AUGUST 31ST, 2019 MOBILE ACTIVE SHOOTER)

IF HOUSE BILL 103 IS PASSED BY THE TEXAS STATE HOUSE AND STATE SENATE, THE TEXAS ACTIVE SHOOTER ALERT SYSTEM WOULD BECOME LAW ON SEPTEMBER 1, 2021.
