Update from Shelley Rose Associate Director of the Anti-Defamation League:

The House Judiciary (Non-Civil) Committee met this afternoon and gave a DO PASS to HB 927. The latest version of the bill is not on the website yet, but should be up soon. The next step is to get the bill through the Rules Committee. We encourage people to contact members of the House Rules Committee and urge them to bring the bill to the floor for a vote by the full House quickly.

Members of the Rules Committee can be found here.

Some background from Voices for Georgia’s Children:

HB 927 defines the scope of bullying, requires local school systems to work with faculty, parents, and students to adopt and enforce anti-bullying policies, and makes it easier for students and necessary for school employees to report information about bullying.
