Nevada Assembly Passes "Safe to Tell" Program

Posted: Updated:
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- The Nevada Assembly has passed a bill creating a "Safe-to-Tell" program that allows people to anonymously report dangerous or illegal activity happening at a school.

Assembly members voted 35-6 on Saturday in favor of SB338, which is sponsored by Democratic Sen. Debbie Smith. Some Republicans opposed the measure.

The bill unanimously passed in the Senate, but senators still need to give final approval to an Assembly amendment.

The measure creates the program within the state's new anti-bullying office, and allows for a confidential hotline people can use to make reports.
