Georgia Lawmakers Consider Anti-hazing Bill

ATLANTA (AP)— State lawmakers are considering legislation that would toughen Georgia’s law on hazing in schools and colleges.

The bill would ban any student convicted of hazing from enrolling inGeorgia’s K-12 schools, colleges and universities, even if the incident happened in another state. It also adds athletic teams to the list of organizations covered in the law.

The legislation’s sponsor, Rep. Joe Wilkinson, a Republican from Sandy Springs, introduced the bill in April, six months before the death of a Florida A&M University drum major from Georgia from suspected hazing. Wilkinson, chairman of the House Ethics Committee, said he has been concerned about hazing for years.
