HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Security experts will be testifying before a panel set up by Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy after the Newtown school shootings that killed 20 students and six educators in December.

The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission is set to meet Friday at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. The commission will be making recommendations to Malloy by March 15 on school safety, mental health issues and gun violence prevention.

The panel will be hearing testimony from several architects, an infrastructure protection official with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a retired FBI agent and the head of a national school safety group.
