(St. Pal, MN) -- Anti-bullying reforms for Minnesota schools could be passed today by the Minnesota House and sent on to Governor Dayton for his signature over the opposition of minority Republicans. It passed the Senate last week, and a hotly contested debate raged in the House yesterday. Republicans call the bill fascist, an attack on conservative Christians, and warn it will impact free speech in schools while taking away local control. The bill sets definitions for bullying and cyber bullying, and requires remedial education for school bullies.
