Tricia Norman, mother of girl who committed suicide because of bullying, promotes 'Rebecca's Law'

TAMPA - A new push for anti-bullying legislation is underway in the wake of Rebecca Sedwick's death. She is the 12-year-old Polk County girl who committed suicide in September of last year.

Rebecca's mother, Tricia Norman, believes such legislation could have saved her daughter's life.

Lawmakers want those who bully others to face possible consequences for their actions. They have filed House Bill 451, also known as 'Rebecca's Law.'

Norman was in Tampa on Friday to promote the measure.
