DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The floor manager of school anti-bullying bill in the Iowa Senate says the bill is unlikely to make it through this legislative session.

Democratic Sen. Rob Hogg says changes made in the Republican-led House on parental notification are unacceptable.

He says the bill, a priority of Gov. Terry Branstad, if not dead, is on life support.

Hogg says one of the primary changes made would remove the ability of school administrators to handle incidents of bullying off school grounds. Hogg says that's the leading issue students who speak to him say needs to be handled.

It would be the second of Branstad's priority policy ideas to run into serious trouble. The other, a tax break encouraging the expansion of high speed internet was defeated in the House on Friday.
