State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, introduced a bill targeting school bullying. AB 9,known as “Seth’s Law,” requires schools to update anti-harassment and -discrimination policies and actively educate staff and students on the harmful effects of bullying. The law is named for Seth Walsh, a 13-year-old gay student who committed suicide in September.
