Beshear Says Bullying Legislation Likely in 2015


Governor Beshear says public safety issues are at the top of his list when he sizes up what he’d like to see the state legislature accomplish during his final year in office.

The Democrat says a bill addressing dating violence is one of those items, as well as better protections for kids in school.

“We’ve got abuse in schools, we’ve got bullying that we’re taking a good, hard look at. We need to protect our kids as much as we can, so we’ll be looking at a number of those kinds of things during this next session.” –Gov. Steve Beshear

Governor Beshear was first elected in 2007 and will complete his second term at the end of next year. State law limits Kentucky governors to two terms.
