STATEMENT from Senator Lauren Book, re: DeSantis Signature of ‘Alyssa’s Law’ (SB 70)

Plantation, FL —

“In the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, milliseconds mattered – and the lack of real-time coordination between first responders likely cost precious lives. After Lori Alhadeff’s daughter Alyssa was killed at MSD, Lori committed herself to memorializing Alyssa by protecting other children in ways her daughter was not. Thanks to Lori’s tireless advocacy, the creation of ‘Alyssa’s Alerts’ ensures children and educators across the state of Florida will be much safer in their classrooms. From one mother to another, I thank her for fighting for all of our children.”
