Gov. Cuomo Signs Anti-Hazing Bill
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed anti-hazing legislation that was prompted by the death of a New York City college student fatally injured while pledging a fraternity. Cuomo says these hazing rituals are dangerous and reckless with potentially fatal consequences, and he is proud to sign this legislation to protect college students as preparations are under way for a new school year. The law prohibits certain physical contact or requiring physical activity in any organization’s initiation ceremony.
