School Board Pushes Congress For Law Change

The Springfield School Board passed a resolution Tuesday night that urges the U.S. Congress to change a law that would prohibit homeless centers from being able to open within one-thousand feet from a school.

The move is aimed at preventing a homeless center for veterans from opening just across the street from Central High School.

You can watch my KY3 News @ 10 story on the dispute over the latest project proposal by the controversial Rev. Larry Rice HERE. Parental concerns about safety and security at Rice-operated shelters has been heightened after two recent violent incidents in St. Louis and outside of Jefferson City.

The school board resolution will now go to Springfield City Council, where its expected to be approved.

Yeah, it's not like it's not across the street from the police station or anything.
