A bill aimed at giving Louisiana families more protections during virtual learning is heading to the state senate.

The Louisiana House of Representatives unanimously approved House Bill 83 yesterday, also known as the Ka'Mauri Harrison Act, after a student who was suspended by Jefferson Parish Schools for moving a BB gun in his bedroom during a virtual class.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, the NRA, and the ACLU later became involved in a case to get the suspension lifted, which led to lawmakers taking action.

The bill will now head to the state Senate.
