Governor Quinn Signs Illinois Prevent School violence Act!
On July 27, 2010, before kicking off the Gay Pride celebration in Chicago, Governor Pat Quinn signed SB3266 into law. With the Illinois Prevent School Violence Act (P.A. 096-0952), Illinois joins more than 30 states whose anti-bullying laws explicitly define bullying and becomes just the ninth state whose anti-bullying laws enumerate categories of students against whom bullying is prohibited.
