Public schools in Oklahoma may soon be required to conduct at least two intruder drills each school year.
A bill currently waiting on a vote in the House would require schools to include the drill along with fire, tornado and other drills designed to protect students and faculty.
The legislation is one of five recommendations submitted to lawmakers by a commission on school security. The Senate already passed the bill.
Tulsa, Wellston and Oklahoma City Public Schools already conduct intruder drills.
