DES MOINES —

“I know they were waiting to look at the governor’s bill before discussing mine,” Hall said. “I believe they are going to discuss them both at the subcommittee and decide if they want to take parts of each one or just choose one.”

Sioux City School Superintendent Paul Gausman said he was “pleased” to see the proposal.

“I am particularly thankful for the focus on district authority to address Cyber-Bullying, as that is a relatively new, but extremely pervasive challenge,” he said. “Some components of the bill are already implemented in Sioux City, and I believe they make a positive difference. I understand that no legislation is perfect, but I am thankful that this study bill is on the table for discussion of one of the most important topics of our day.”
