LANSING, MI (WILX) -- Legislation that would make athletic trainers and physical therapists mandatory reporters of child abuse and neglect is advancing at the State Capitol.

This legislation comes in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal.

The house approved the bills Wednesday and sent them to the senate.

Some Nassar victims have said they told a gymnastics coach and trainers at MSU that Nassar molested them, but nothing was done.

Coaches are not included in the legislation.
