ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Gov. Mark Dayton is taking a stand against bullying by unveiling an plan aimed at stopping it in Minnesota.
Dayton is expected to announce the executive order at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.
Minnesota Public Radio reports that two sources familiar with the project said the executive order will create a task force.
The task force will be in charge of coming up with recommendations on what the state can do to prevent bullying.
Currently, Minnesota law only requires districts to have a bullying prevention policy, but provides little guidance.
