JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Senate on Wednesday passed a bill making cyber bullying a misdemeanor offense.

Senate Bill 128, sponsored by Republican Senator Kevin Meyer of Anchorage, makes it illegal for those under the age of 18 to use electronic devises to bully others.

Meyer says his bill creates a punishment outside the school system for those involved.

It passed the Senate unanimously and goes to the House.
