Gov. Christie announces plans for NJ anti-bullying law

TRENTON - Joined by lawmakers from both parties as well as equality advocates, Gov. Christie announced plans to bail out New Jersey's anti-bullying law.

A state panel had determined that the bullying program amounted to an unfunded mandate on school districts. Unless the program was changed, it would have been struck down in 60 days.

The governor announced the state would put $1 million into a grant program to help school districts cover costs related to training teachers and parents on the warning signs of bullying and teen suicide.
