JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri lawmakers are calling for efforts to combat school bullying.

Legislators were expected to discuss the legislation during a news conference Monday in the state Capitol building.

One proposal would develop definitions for "cyber-bullying" and instruct schools to develop policies to combat online bullying.

The efforts to combat school bullying are backed by the Safe Schools Coalition, which represents 40 organizations across Missouri.
