LANSING (AP) – Schools will have six months to put anti-bullying policies into place once Governor Rick Snyder signs the measures into law.

A spokeswoman says the governor plans to do that Tuesday afternoon.

Michigan recently ended up in the national spotlight after GOP senators passed an anti-bullying bill that included a clause saying the legislation didn’t “prohibit a statement of a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction.”

Democrats say the exceptions would have made it even easier to bully.

The House and Senate last week passed a version without that language.
