Connecticut lawmakers are considering a bill that would provide immunity from civil liability for school security consultants.

The legislature's Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear public testimony today on the proposal, co-sponsored by Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, whose district includes Newtown.

Many school districts have revisited their security plans since the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

Under the bill, any person hired as a consultant and who designs a security plan for a school or a district would be immune from civil liability for damage or injury resulting from any errors or omissions made in a school security plan.

There would be an exception for damage and injuries caused by reckless and willful misconduct.
