New bullying legislation reaches Indiana lawmakers

INDIANAPOLIS — Stories of bullying made their way to the statehouse and along with the most powerful anti bullying bill in Indiana's history.

Danielle Green's 14-year-old daughter hung herself in a tree by her bus stop in Lafayette.

She left behind a note that read: Bullying killed me, get justice.

Her mom plans to do that by urging lawmakers to pass a bill with details for teachers on how to investigate bullying in Indiana schools.

"I want the schools to have more training and I want the kids and everybody to have support and resources for how to handle it," said Green.

Some conservative groups like the Indiana Family Institute worry that the bill could limit free speech and religious freedoms.
