NJ’s Anti-Bullying Law Saved From Extinction [VIDEO]

The Garden State’s nationally recognized anti-bullying law faced constitutional questions because the state didn’t provide funding for it and it was poised to be invalidated, but today Governor Chris Christie and State lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle have announced a legislative fix.

The bill provides $1 million for the anti-bullying fund which schools can access through a grant process once they’ve shown that they’ve exhausted every free mechanism already available. The measure also sets up a 7-member task force to take a closer look at the law. Christie says the measure will be put on the fast-track and signed into law as soon as possible.

The Governor says the law will save lives. “I’ve spoken to parents over the years who have had children commit suicide and one of the things you hear many of them say is, ‘We didn’t know,’” explains the Governor. “Part of what I hope we’re trying to accomplish here is to give people the tools to make that differentiation so that they can get their kids some help.”
