The bill, H.R. 6019, would refine a current law that already allows federal grants for programs meant to boost school safety. But it adds more specificity to this provision, and allows for the grants to cover school safety programs that "may include research-based bullying prevention, cyberbullying prevention and gang prevention programs, as well as intervention programs regarding bullying."
Grants to fight bullying would be permitted under the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant program, along with many others, such as grants to help states expand juvenile detention centers and hire judges to hear juvenile cases. The bill would also reauthorize that broad program and let it spend $40 million a year for the next five years. (The Hill, via Drudge)
