New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed an anti-bullying bill that gay rights advocates say is the toughest law of its kind in the nation.
The issue has gotten more attention since a Rutgers University student killed himself this fall after his roommate allegedly captured his liaison with another man on a webcam.
Christie's office confirmed that the governor signed the bill on Wednesday.
The law requires anti-bullying programs in public schools and requires college codes of conduct to address bullying. It updates a law that's been on the books in the state since 2001.
