COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio bill would require the state's attorney general to develop a training model for school employees who are allowed to carry concealed weapons.

School boards would have to consult with local police to develop school safety protocols, if districts decide to let certain employees carry concealed weapons. The measure would shield the names of gun-carrying employees and block protocols for carrying concealed weapons from being part of collective bargaining negotiations.

State law limits the people who can have a deadly weapon in a school safety zone to security guards, on-duty officers and others whom a district's board has given permission. The bill would allow off-duty officers to also carry weapons.

The House passed the bill 62-28 on Wednesday, sending it to the Senate.
