BEACON HILL DISCUSSES TASK FORCE ON SEXUAL ASSAULT CONCERNS 

By Bob Katzen 

Bill  (H 2998) – The Higher Education Committee has scheduled a public hearing on several bills on April 13 at 10 p.m. in Room A-1 at the Statehouse. One of the proposals would create a task force to develop a model sexual assault climate survey to be issued to private and public college students in order to determine the prevalence and perception of sexual assault on college campuses. 
   The survey would include the number of reported incidences of sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking on campuses; student knowledge of institutional policies and procedures; the involvement of force; incapacitation or coercion; and demographic factors that could be used to identify at-risk groups.
   The Senate approved the bill in 2016 but the House never acted on it.
