Lawmakers consider anti-bullying hotline

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A state hotline to combat bullying is under consideration for Iowa. The idea follows the weekend suicide of a 14-year-old northwest Iowa boy who was bullied after he acknowledged to others that he was gay.

At least two lawmakers are checking into whether a hotline can be set up before the legislative session ends. This would be in addition to the Iowa Suicide and Crisis Hotline.
