‘Collin’s Law: Ohio’s Anti-Hazing Act’  

COLUMBUS – State Rep. Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) has released the following statement after attending Governor Mike DeWine’s bill signing for Senate Bill 126, also known as Collin’s Law: Ohio’s Anti-Hazing Act:

“I’m proud to have worked with my colleagues in the General Assembly as we came together in taking steps at combating hazing at our institutions of higher education. We shall never allow the names of Ohio University student Collin Wiant or Bowling Green State University student Stone Foltz or other victims to ever be silent. These two young men lost their lives as the result of hazing, and while their families continue to grieve they remain committed, as do I, to making sure such tragedies never happen again.

“Simultaneously, I introduced similar legislation to Senate Bill 126, which also touched on the concerns of K-12 bullying happening in our schools. While this was not in the final version signed into law today, I remain adamant and committed to further addressing bullying incidents that occur around our state so that all our children feel like they’re in a safe and secure environment when receiving an education.
