LANSING (WKZO) -- A bill to establish a communication system enabling students, parents, teachers and police to share and respond to school safety threats is headed to the state Senate.

The Michigan House passed the OK-2-SAY initiative put forth by Attorney General Bill Schuette 108-1 Wednesday.  The attorney general contends the system will help students "break the culture of silence" with a confidential way to report school threats and violence before it happens.

Figures from the U.S. Secret Service indicate that in 81-percent of violent incidents in U.S. schools, someone other than the attacker knew about the plan and didn't report it.
