Legislation aimed at curbing sexual assault in Michigan passed the state House Thursday. The bills were introduced in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal. Nassar is the former Michigan State University sports doctor who sexually assaulted his patients for years.  

Capital Correspondant Cheyna Roth reports all lawmakers agreed they want to help victims of sexual assault – But some lawmakers argued a few of the bills didn’t go far enough.
