Committee hears testimony on Nassar inspired legislation

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- A Michigan House Law and Justice Committee heard testimony Tuesday morning on legislation designed to protect Michigan children in response to the Larry Nassar scandal.

House lawmakers unveiled their 17-bill plan earlier this month following recommendations of two House committees tasked to review Michigan State University's response to complaints filed against Nassar.

Lawmakers detail what they call systemic failures at MSU. Some of which involve failed investigations, medical records missing, and loopholes in policy.

The Law and Justice Committee heard the testimony on the legislation Tuesday at 9 a.m. at the House Office Building at the State Capitol in Lansing.
