Lawmaker pushing to expand Grace's Law

ANNAPOLIS - On Tuesday, lawmakers in Annapolis are expected to take up a proposal to expand "Grace's Law".

Currently the measure makes it a crime to bully a child online or through social media.

The law is named after Grace McComas, a Howard County teen who took her own life after being bullied online.

Right now "Grace's Law" only applies to children.

Delegate Jon Cardin wants to expand the law to protect adults as well.
