The Arkansas House has given final passage to a bill that would require school districts to enact anti-bullying policies that take Facebook and other electronic forums into consideration.

The bill passed the Senate 34-0 and it cleared the House Monday on a 68-18 vote.

Rep. David Powers of Hope spoke for the bill on behalf of Sen. David Johnson. Powers says current anti-bullying rules aren’t working in many cases.

The bill calls for districts to provide training and to investigate every credible report of bullying and document the result.
