|From:||Representative Michael H. O'Brien|
|To:||All House members|
| I plan to re-introduce a two-Bill package regarding Bullying and Harassment. It is urgent that we work together to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth against this unacceptable behavior, which we know has caused emotional & physical harm including death and suicide.
I ask you to join me in sponsorship of responsible laws which would curtail this horrible behavior and protect our most vulnerable citizens, especially children.
Introduced as HB99
|Description:||This Bill which would provide definitions and penalties, House Bill 271 of last Session was Co-sponsored by the following members:
CALTAGIRONE, KAVULICH, CLYMER, BOBACK,CONKLIN, D. COSTA, DAVIS, DeLUCA, FRANKEL, GILLESPIE, GOODMAN, HARKINS, JOSEPHS, KIRKLAND, KORTZ, KOTIK, MANN, MURPHY, K. SMITH, SWANGER, WATSON AND YOUNGBLOOD.
Introduced as HB101
|Description:||The second Bill in the package, House Bill 879 of last Session, would involve legislation under the School Code regarding bullying. This Legislation focuses on the School environment and protection and expansion of student’s rights. The New Jersey State Legislature passed similar legislation which Governor Christie signed into law. I am hopeful that we can protect the children of this Commonwealth as they have in New Jersey.
