Illinois anti-bullying law moves to governor’s desk
The Illinois House of Representatives voted unanimously Friday to approve legislation making schools safer for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students.
The anti-bullying legislation specifically prevents harassment of students based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
“Passing a statewide anti-bullying bill was one of our top legislative priorities for this year,” CEO of Equality Illinois Bernard Cherkasov told ChicagoPride.com  last week.
Schools will be required to adopt policies that protect students from bullying and violence.
The bill’s next stop is Gov. Pat Quinn’s desk for signing.
