CRITERIA ESTABLISHED BY THE COMMISSIONER.
  3. SCHOOL AUTHORITIES SHALL PROVIDE THE NEEDED  FACILITIES,  TIME  AND
PLACE  FOR  THE  INSTRUCTION SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION AND SHALL PROVIDE
LEARNING AIDS AND CURRICULUM  RESOURCE  MATERIALS  WHICH  CONTRIBUTE  TO
EFFECTIVE TEACHING METHODS AND LEARNING IN ANTI-GUN VIOLENCE.
  S  2.  This act shall take effect on the first of July next succeeding
the date upon which it shall have become a law.  Effective  immediately,
the  addition,  amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation neces-
