A Larry Nassar inspired bill is moving through the state legislature once again, after faltering last session.

The reintroduced bill is aimed at strengthening rules for health care workers performing penetrative medical examinations.

If passed the measure would require maintained medical records of penetrating procedures for at least 15 years.

It would mandate state medical boards provide guidance on when such procedures are appropriate.

It would also require minors to provide written parental consent before the procedure.

Finally, another health professional would need to be present during the procedure.
