DENVER (AP) - Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a bill into law aimed at reducing bullying in Colorado schools.
Hickenlooper signed the bill at Lakewood High School Friday as students and the proposal's sponsors looked on. The measure updates definitions for bullying at schools, including adding language about online bullying.
The new law also encourages schools to conduct biannual student surveys about bullying and enables the state to accept grants to provide grants for prevention programs.
The governor was also visiting a restaurant in Lakewood to sign a bill allowing bars and restaurants to sell low-strength beer.
