LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) - One state lawmaker is proposing a new bill aimed at fighting cyberbullying.
State Senator Glenn Anderson (D-Westland) introduced Senate Bill 74.
It would require schools to update their current anti-bullying policies to include cyberbullying. Under the bill, schools could come up with their own standards, but they must submit any changes to their policies to the state Department of Education.
The bill would also require districts to report incidents of bullying to the Department of Education.
Schools would also need to assure those who report bullying that they could remain anonymous.
The bill has passed a state senate committee and now moves to the full state senate.
