Hazing Bill Gets Initial Support

Cheyenne, WY – Two bills dealing with hazing and bullying got initial support from the Wyoming House of Representatives. Laramie Democrat Jane Warren brought a bill to prohibit hazing. She says there is no current prohibition against hazing in Wyoming. This would make it a misdemeanor. The house also debated a bill by Representative Kathy Davison to outlaw any harassment or bullying in schools. Both measures will be debated two more times by the house.
