If anything is worth a bunch of !!!! and OMGees, this is it. The N.C. House voted, after much hemming and hawing from Republicans, to ensure equal protection from bullying for North Carolina's school children regardless of where they live in the state or which school district they attend.
At one point Republican John Blust claimed there had been bullying going on at the General Assembly....because we all know grown men and women just can't take care of themselves as well as 11 year olds, right?
Many thanks to Senator Julia Boseman, Rep. Rick Glazier and Rep. Tricia Cotham for taking the lead on this legislation. It's a great night for North Carolina's students.
I should add...don't rest on our laurels. There is a final vote tomorrow. Call and thank those who voted for the bill and keep working on those who voted against.
