A new report issued says at least 28-states introduced bills this year in response to campus sexual assaults. WBFO'S Focus on Education Reporter Eileen Buckley says the report was released by the Education Commission of States and NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education.
New York State is one of three states that actually enacted new legislation. This new report says that those states that promoted legislation fell into four categories: the role of local law enforcement, transcript notation, the role of legal counsel and affirmative consent.
New York's has one of the toughest new laws in place to fight campus sexual assaults. The law covers consent, law enforcement and transcripts.
