(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania state senators have paved the way for the formation of a task force to study mass shootings.
The state Senate has approved a resolution directing the Joint State Government Commission to establish an advisory committee of about 25 people, including public officials and experts on violent crime.
Its final report can include recommendations to change the state's laws on mental health treatment and firearms, policies on violent crime and school safety practices.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Stewart Greenleaf proposed the resolution in response to December's deadly shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut.
