Legislation to make Colorado public schools legally liable for student safety awaits the governor’s signature.
The state House and Senate agreed Monday on final language in the bill to allow public schools to be sued for negligence in cases of school shootings or other violence.
Gov. John Hickenlooper has said he supports the bill, meaning it is likely to become law.
Lawsuits would be limited to $350,000 per victim or $900,000 per incident.
