Governor Brian Sandoval is scheduled to sign Senate Bill 504 today at Carson City Middle School in Carson City. Sandoval will be joined by members of the Legislature and 8th grade students.

The bill revises the definition of bullying and creates a separate anti-bullying office, The Office of Safe and Respectful Learning, within the Nevada Department of Education.
