Sexual orientation the focus of new anti-bullying bill
U.S. Sen. Al Franken, DFL-Minn., is planning to introduce a bill today designed to protect gay students from discrimination and harassment. The Student Non-Discrimination Act would prohibit discrimination based on actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. If signed into law, public schools that violate the statute could lose federal funding or be sued by victims. MPR's Cathy Wurze spoke with Sen. Franken.
