The Ripon Advance: Lance takes lead of bipartisan anti-hazing measure

The U.S. House on Sept. 12 agreed to make U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ) the lead sponsor of a bipartisan anti-hazing bill for American colleges.

The congressman is among 29 members already cosponsoring H.R. 2926, including U.S. Reps. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (R-PA), Lynn Jenkins (R-KS), Tom Marino (R-PA), Fred Upton (R-MI), French Hill (R-AR), Jeff Denham (R-CA), Bruce Poliquin (R-ME), Steve Stivers (R-OH), and lead original cosponsor Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH).
