Michigan's Children Speak Out Against Republican Pro-Bullying Legislation

State Sen. Gretchen Whitmer today said that language in state anti-bullying bill that would permit harassment for religious reasons would be changed before the bill becomes law, and she is hopeful that after meeting with Republican lawmakers that it will happen soon.

"It looks like they are poised to do that," Whitmer told WJR's Paul W. Smith on Tuesday morning, an election day across the state. "I'm glad to say that there are people on both sides of the aisle that believe that we should not legitimize excuses for tormenting a student in school."
