Gov. Christie signed New Jersey's tough anti-bullying legislation into law Monday. The law was briefly set aside this year after one small school district complained about the cost of training and materials. A local mandates council agreed that the law created a financial burden.
Lawmakers and the governor reached a deal this month for the state to provide $1 million in funding. The money will be awarded as reimbursement grants that districts can apply for after they use up free training materials available online.
