BOISE -- The new guns on campus law is scheduled to take effect next month.

On Wednesday, the Idaho State Board of Education approved an amendment to its policy on campus safety.

The update makes it clear firearms are allowed on campus, only as allowed by the new law or by the institution during special events.

Colleges and universities are working on updating their security plans, and will report those at the August meeting in Pocatello.

The guns on campus law will allow retired law enforcement and those with Idaho's enhanced conceal carry license to take guns on to limited areas of college and university campuses.
