MIAMI, FL (WFLX) - A federal anti-hazing bill will soon be introduced in Congress.
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, a Miami Democrat, announced plans for the bill on Tuesday.
The bill comes weeks after the homicide of Florida A&M University drum major, Robert Champion. Orange County deputies said Champion was punched and paddled in a hazing ritual during the school's "Marching 100 Band Trip" to the annual Florida Classic in Orlando.
Rep. Wilson said hazing is demeaning, dangerous and deadly and needs to be stopped.
