TRENTON - Landmark anti-bullying legislation is still pending in the state capitol as the review period comes to an end tomorrow.

The measure passed with bipartisan support on Nov. 22 and Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) promised to study it, but now the 45-day review period will expire tomorrow.

The Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights sailed through both chambers just two months after Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi committed suicide.

The bill can still become a law without Christie's signature.
