"Eagles Act" Bill Would Have Secret Service Preventing School Violence

Under a bill that is being co-sponsored by several state senators, including Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson, the U.S. Secret Service would get more involved in preventing school violence.  

The "Eagles Act" is named after the mascot of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, site of the Valentine's Day mass shooting that killed 17 people.  

The measure would provide funding to the Secret Service's National Threat Assessment Center, which Rubio says will provide top-notch research to stop school violence and help prevent future tragedies. 

Nelson says the bill will help give school officials the resources and training they need to detect potential threats before they materialize.
