Storm Shelters in Kansas Schools
Governor Brownback, We ask of you today, that in light of the situation in Moore, Oklahoma, that laws be passed that make it mandatory for all schools,pre-schools and daycares in Kansas to have storm shelters in place. Let us put our tax dollars to use for the safety of our children, and do not let us be lenient in our definition of the word 'shelter'. These should be an underground shelter, built to withstand tornado strength winds. Sheltering our children in hallways in a crouched position with their hands over their heads is NOT sufficient shelter.
