WASHINGTON DC (February 12, 2020) — Prepared floor remarks by Senator Chuck Grassley on the anniversary of the Parkland Shooting:


This Friday marks the two year anniversary of the shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Seventeen innocent lives were lost at the hands of evil. We will never forget that tragic day.

I’m dedicated to keeping weapons from dangerous people. That’s why I’ve introduced the EAGLES Act the past two years.

This bipartisan, bicameral bill reauthorizes and expands the leading center in threat assessment and prevention. This bill is a tribute to the victims and families.

Also, the Justice Department still hasn’t provided its report on the shooting to Congress.

They owe it to the families to get it done.
