Log Cabin Republicans Welcomes Rep. Peter King as Latest GOP Co-Sponsor of SSIA

Mar 27, 2014

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Peter King (R-NY) has become the latest Republican co-sponsor of the Safe Schools Improvement Act (SSIA), bi-partisan federal legislation that addresses bullying and harassment for all students, ensuring the development of comprehensive, enumerated anti-bullying and anti-harassment policies in schools nationwide to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

“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.
