State Legislators Introduce Campus Sexual Assault Bills
Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson and Assemblymember Das Williams recently introduced legislation to address sexual assaults on college campuses. Jackson’s bill specifically targets community colleges and would permit them to expel or suspend students for “egregious” behavior they commit off campus. Williams’s package of bills proposes a measure to require campus judicial affairs departments to consider suspending a student for two years or expulsion for sexual assault. Another Williams bill requires academic transcripts to note if a student is found guilty of committing sexual assault. The current UC system only notes a dismissal.
