Michigan becomes 48th state to pass anti-bullying law

MICHIGAN --  Michigan has taken a strong step to stop bullying.

Governor Rick Snyder has signed the "Matt's Safe School Law.” The law is named in honor of a Michigan teen who committed suicide in 2002 after years of bullying.

Michigan is now the 48th state to pass an anti-bullying law. Every school in Michigan needs to adopt an anti-bullying policy by the next school year. 

Indiana already has anti-bullying legislation in place.
