Governor Peter Shumlin will visit the offices of the gay rights organization Outright Vermont to celebrate the recent passage of two bills aimed at stamping out bullying in schools.
Shumlin recently signed into law two bills related to bullying.
One allows people to sue schools for failing to take steps to stop harassment. The other requires schools to adopt policies aimed at cracking down on harassment, hazing and bullying.
Outright is praising Shumlin as a protector of gay rights.
