Assembly Bill No. 202 (AB202): http://www.leg.state.nv.us/73rd/Reports/history.cfm?ID=1705
Thanks to reporter, Joan Whitely, of the Las
Vegas Review Journal, we have been notified of Nevada's
new Harassment and Intimidation Act introduce on March 14, 2005, passed
unanimously by both Nevada Houses and signed by Nevada Governor, Kenny
C. Guinn, on June 1, 2005. Thank you Joan for getting Bully Police
USA a copy of Nevada's new law.
Comments: Although the word "Bullying" is never mentioned in
this law, it is clearly an anti bullying law. "Harassment" and "Intimidation"
is included in the definition of bullying - but no clear definition of
bullying is included in this law. Still, one-half point, (http://www.bullypolice.org/grade.html),
is given for some excellent language in Sec. 8. I especially liked,
All persons in public schools are entitled to maintain their own beliefs
and to respectfully disagree without resorting to violence, harassment
or intimidation:... Very good!!!
Covers point 2, 1/2 point for 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 11 = 8 1/2
points for a B+
