- Speaker Timothy Jones, Missouri State House of Representatives
- United States of America
Missouri is a state located within the region known as "Tornado Alley". In 2011, Joplin was struck by one of the most devastating tornadoes in our country's history.
Recently, Moore, OK was struck by a storm of similar magnitude. Each of these storms struck schools and lives were lost needlessly.
Had these schools and others been required to have storm shelters on site, lives may have been saved.
We, the undersigned hereby call on the Legislators of the State of Missouri to introduce legislation requiring every school in our state to build and/or maintain a tornado shelter on their property in order to ensure the safety of the children entrusted into their care.
The Require Storm Shelters in all Missouri Public Schools petition to Speaker Timothy Jones, Missouri State House of Representatives was written by Jennifer Scott and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
