Local lawmaker to introduce anti-bullying bill

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A day after President Obama released an anti-bullying message, State Rep. John Mizuno (D-Kalihi Valley) said he plans to introduce a bill that will require the Department of Education to adopt rules against bullying.

The bill would direct schools to develop a procedure for students and parents to confidentially report incidents of bullying or cyber-bullying. Schools would also have to develop a formal investigation process and disciplinary procedures for students who have bullied others.
