Anti-bullying bill faces legislative deadline

DENVER — An anti-bullying measure that could prompt more school uniforms across Colorado is still pending in the Legislature, with only hours to go to pass the bill.

The bullying measure mostly just enables the state to accept donations to start working on statewide anti-bullying efforts. But the bill does urge local school districts to promote “uniformity of dress” — without requiring universal school uniforms.

The House and Senate have both approved the measure but in slightly different forms. The Senate added a provision protecting students bullied because of their political beliefs, but the House didn’t address politics. A committee to rectify the differences plans to meet today on the closing day of the 2011 Legislature.
