Vote is Monday, May 2nd on Anti-Bullying Bill HB 1942!
Fact: Time is running out on the Texas Legislature to pass meaningful legislation to address the loss of life associated with bullying, cyberbullying, and harassment. Barely over one month remains in the Session and lawmakers are focused on the budget and redistricting.
Fact: According to information compiled by the Texas School Safety Center at Texas State University - San Marcos, there have been four bullying-related suicides of Texas students since the 2009 Legislative Session when lawmakers also failed to pass meaningful legislation.
