Hearings for legislation after Nassar abuse scheduled

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Survivors of Larry Nassar's abuse could speak before a state house committee who are considering legislation designed to protect Michigan children from sexual predators.

The House Law and Justice Committee heard testimony last week , along with pushback from doctors who say they're worried the bills would over-regulate doctors, who they say, the vast majority are innocent.

The meeting will take place at the House Office Building in room 521 on Wednesday, April 25, at approx. 2 p.m. (after House session).

State Rep. Klint Kesto, chair of the committee, will continue an open discussion on Nassar-related bills, seeking more testimony from medical professionals, educators, private citizens and Nassar victims.

The testimony will include bills from a Senate package introduced in February as well as a recent multi-bill House plan that was submitted last week. This after following recommendations of two House Committees tasked to review Michigan State University’s response to complaints filed against Nassar.
