N.J. governor signs tough anti-bullying law
Question of the Day
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday signed an anti-bullying bill that gay rights advocates say is the toughest law of its kind in the nation.
The issue has gotten more attention since Rutgers University freshman Tyler Clementi killed himself this fall after his roommate allegedly captured his liaison with another man on a webcam.
The law requires anti-bullying programs in public schools and requires college codes of conduct to address bullying. It updates a law that’s been on the books in the state since 2001.
Mr. Christie’s office on Thursday confirmed that he signed the bill Wednesday.
The gay rights group Garden State Equality and the bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Diane Allen, praised Mr. Christie for signing the law.
