Anti-"Swatting" Bill Passes California Senate

May 10, 2013

Democratic State Senator Ted Lieu’s bill would make “swatters” liable for the thousands of dollars it costs agencies to respond to such calls.

Phoning in a fake 9-1-1 call as a prank or for retaliation would get a lot more costly under the new bill.

ALSO: California schools may soon accommodate transgendered students.
