Lawmakers Lobby For Passage Of Anti-Bullying Bill

Albany, N.Y. - A couple New York state lawmakers are urging their colleagues to pass an anti-bullying bill.

Jacobe's Law would require school officials to notify parents of the bullies and victim when they are aware of a bullying situation at school.  The law is named after 13-year-old Jacobe Taras who took his own life in 2015 after claiming he was bullied at the school he attended in South Glens Falls.  

The bill has already passed the Senate but Monday in Albany Senator Jim Tedisco and Assemblywoman Patricia Fahy will push for its passage in the Assembly.
