Madhu Krishnamurthy this morning writes about a plan in Springfield trying to prevent hazing like the recent scandals at Maine West and Hoffman Estates high schools.

This morning, state Rep. Marty Moylan, a Des Plaines Democrat, got the proposal moved through a House committee.

It now moves to the full House floor.

State Rep. Dennis Reboletti, an Elmhurst Republican, questioned Moylan over some of the details of the plan. He asked, for example, about where exactly the line is between hazing and just joking around.

Despite those questions, the committee approved by a 15-0 vote.
