Cyberbullying bill sails through Md. Senate

February 9th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Senate gave unanimous approval this week to a cyberbullying bill named to honor a Woodbine teenager who took her own life in 2012 after online abuse. The entire Senate stood to give an ovation to Christine McComas, who has advocated for years alongside her husband, Dave, for greater laws to protect children like her daughter, Grace. “Thank you, Mrs. McComas for your dogged advocacy,” Baltimore County Sen. Robert A. Zirkin (D) said, as his colleagues rose around him. Zirkin is chief sponsor of Grace’s Law 2.0, which substantially expands a law that criminalized cyber harassment in 2013. The measure passed the Senate 45-0
