(THE HILL) The House is expected to approve legislation as early as Monday that would provide grant money to states to fight bullying at schools.

“It is time for us to stand together and stop bullying,” said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), the sponsor of the bill. “Everyone deserves to feel safe and free from persecution.

“I urge my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to vote in favor of my bill in order to keep U.S. citizens safe from harassment and to work toward making America bully-free,” she added.
