Governor Snyder to Sign Anti-Bullying Legislation
Governor Rick Snyder is expected to sign legislation today that will require schools to develop anti-bullying policies.
The long awaited legislation was passed by the House a month ago and by the Senate on November 30th.
The Governor is expected to sign the House version of the bill which does not include the highly criticized exception for bullies that held religious beliefs or moral convictions. That provision in the Senate sponsored bill has drawn national attention.
Once signed, the law will be known as “Matt’s Safe School Law” after Matt Eppling an East Lansing High School student who committed suicide after being bullied.
The bill signing will take place at 3:15 p.m. at the State Capitol.
