The bill, HR-6538, passed 260-169.

Candidate statements

“I am beyond disappointed that for one of his first official votes, my opponent ignored the advice of law enforcement and voted against a bill to help people stay safe during an active shooting. This vote perfectly illustrates the difference between Mike Flood and me.

H.R. 6538 sets up procedures to guide the use of mass alert systems to 'facilitate the efficient issuance of active shooter alerts and other key information to local residents, motorists, travelers and individuals in the vicinity of an active shooter.' ”

Patty Pansing-Brooks, candidate for Nebraska's 1st Congressional District
