Anti-Bullying Bill Moves to full Okla. House

An Oklahoma state panel approved anti-bullying legislation.

It's designed to protect Oklahoma school students from intimidation and harassment both on and off school grounds.

It now goes to the full House for consideration. If it passes schools must provide consequences to those who commit acts of bullying through physical or emotional harm to a student.

That also includes cyber bullying through e-mail, instant messaging, texting and other electronic communications.

The legislation's author says the bill is inspired by the May suicide of an 11-year-old bullying victim.
