Anti-Bullying Bill



An anti-bullying law that replaces one some found too weak is now in place.

Governor Mark Dayton used an outdoor ceremony Wednesday to sign a bill toughening Minnesota's stand against bullying. The bill passed overnight after a protracted House debate.

Dayton said the bill strengthens existing anti-bullying laws.

Supporters say it will provide a safer learning environment for children. Critics argue it will subject more kids to punishment for expressing their religious beliefs or engaging in other youthful behavior.
