FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A bill aimed at establishing a statewide definition of bullying in Kentucky’s public schools is headed to Gov. Matt Bevin after clearing the state General Assembly.

The measure passed the House with no debate on Monday. It cleared the Senate earlier this month.

The bill’s lead sponsor is Republican Sen. Danny Carroll of Paducah.

Carroll says the standardized definition would provide schools with more guidance in identifying and stopping bullying. He says the definition would be incorporated into codes of conduct at schools, and would allow schools to accurately report the number of bullying incidents.

The legislation is Senate Bill 228.
