Governor signing school bullying bill into law

DENVER (AP) - Gov. John Hickenlooper is hitting the road to sign bills into law, including one that would reduce bullying in Colorado schools.

The measure (House Bill 1254) would define bullying, require school districts to develop policies to prevent bullying and provide grants for prevention programs.

He plans to sign the bill at a high school on Friday. The governor also plans to visit a restaurant in Lakewood and sign a bill allowing bars and restaurants to sell low-strength beer.

We'll have more on this new bill Friday evening on New First 5.
