Bill limiting use of physical restraints on students with disabilities clears final Senate committee

A bill that would further limit the use of physical restraints on students with disabilities cleared its final Senate committee Monday.

Sen. Lauren Book’s bill (SB 390) was voted favorably as part of the Senate Appropriations Committee consent agenda and is now able to get a vote from the full Senate.

Book’s bill expands restrictions passed and signed into law last year.
