“School officials should be making every effort to protect kids from bullying,” King said. “Passage of the Safe Schools Improvement Act would be a significant step toward providing a healthy school environment for all kids.”
In supporting this zero-cost legislation Congressman King joins eight of his GOP colleagues in the House (Reps. Ros-Lehtinen, Hanna, Young, Gibson, Grimm, Runyan, Dent and LoBiondo) and two in the Senate (Sens. Kirk and Murkowski) who are already co-sponsors of the bill.
Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo stated:
We welcome Congressman King as the latest Republican co-sponsor of this common-sense, no-cost legislation. His leadership today will ensure that our leaders of tomorrow are given the chance to thrive in a safe educational environment. As a New York native, it’s personally heartening to see Congressman King standing up for our nation’s students and on the right side of history.
