A commission tasked with looking into the failings that led up to the mass school shooting in Parkland will have its first meeting Tuesday.

The 16-member Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission comes out of Florida’s new gun safety law that includes a bump stocks ban and raises the age to purchase a gun from 18 to 21.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the commission’s agenda is full with mostly organizational duties.

The meeting will start at 8:30 a.m., and is expected to most of the day.

It will be held at Broward College’s North Campus in Coconut Creek—about 20 minutes from Parkland, where the Valentine’s Day massacre occurred.
