The Illinois House of Representatives just voted by 108-0 to pass SB3266, which will require schools to fight bullying in schools by adopting anti-bullying policies, creating resistance education and training for students, and other reasonable measures.  Illinois State Senate passed the bill earlier this month.  This bill covers bullying specifically targeted at students because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, among other categories.  It will now go to Illinois Governor Pat Quinn for signing.
