KEYT: New bill aims to protect women on California college campuses

February 12, 2014

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A new bill was introduced this week by state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) calls for a cultural change on college campuses when it comes to rape and sexual assault.

Senate Bill 967 is authored by Jackson and Sen. Kevin de León of East Los Angeles. It would require California colleges and universities to address campus sexual violence by requiring them to adopt consistent sexual assault polices and protocols that focus on the victim.
