RI congressman sponsors anti-bullying law
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Rhode Island congressman David Cicilline is working to curb all kinds of bullying, whether it's on the playground or the Internet.
The Democratic representative is sponsoring legislation designed to prevent bullying in a move he says will supplement anti-bullying efforts on a local level in Rhode Island.
The legislation is expected to help schools develop anti-bullying initiatives and improve measures already in place to combat bullying.
The congressman says bullying can contribute to a high drop-out rate.
