A bill proposed by Rep. Roy Burrell of Shreveport would make "cyberbullying" a crime.
The House Criminal Justice Committee is scheduled to debate the measure today.
The bill comes as a bullying case in Massachusetts has received national attention.
Six high school students are charged with bullying a 15-year-old girl who eventually killed herself.
Prosecutors say the girl endured months of threats, including on Facebook and through other electronic forms.
