The Maine legislature is about to go back into session.  Among the myriad of bills they will be looking at is an Anti-Bullying bill.  This bill was supported 10-3 in the education committee and passed in both the house and senate last session before getting hitting a road block in the house before the final vote where it received only 80 votes in favor.  This bill helps schools develop clear anti bullying policies that will protect kids and help provide safer environment for Maine students to learn and actually provides the training that teachers need in this area.  The bill was sent back to committee and will be picked back up as soon as January.  Help get this bill passed. Tell Hancock county legislators that this bill is important to all Maine students.  Rep. Malaby voted against this bill tell him that Mainers won't tolerate bullying.  Senator Langley also needs to hear from his constituents, pass Morrison's Anti-bullying bill 1237. Phonebanks will take place from the Hancock county democratic office Wednesday  January 4th and 11th from 5:30-8. Contact  Beth Allen for more information @ 812-8654 or via email @ ballen@equalitymaine.org.
