TYLER - A new anti-bullying bill drafted in Texas would add to a law already in place that protects students from being bullied.
Texas state representative Mark Strama says, his bill would expand the definition of bullying, and include a section on cyber-bullying.
The bill would require all school districts to report any incident of bullying to state officials. The bill would also give authority to school officials to move a bully into a separate classroom.
It's an option only for the victim, under current law.
