Hearing planned on college sex assault bill

State lawmakers are expected to hear testimony next week on a bill that attempts to improve sexual assault policies on Connecticut college campuses and the way schools report sex assaults involving students and employees. The proposed legislation comes in the wake of a federal lawsuit that claims the University of Connecticut reacted to reports of sexual assaults on its main campus in Storrs with deliberate indifference or worse, an allegation UConn denies. The General Assembly’s higher education committee has set a public hearing for Tuesday on the legislation, which includes more reporting requirements for schools. It also requires more information be provided to victims about their rights. Additionally, victims would have the option to report an assault to the institution anonymously. (AP)
