More than two dozen proposed laws sparked by the sexual abuse scandal involving Larry Nassar sailed through the Michigan House in Lansing on Thursday, including bills that would grant childhood sex assault victims more time to sue and require athletic trainers to report suspected abuse.
Gov. Rick Snyder supports the 27-bill bipartisan package, which received some criticism for enabling people abused by the former sports doctor to retroactively seek damages through the courts but not other victims of sexual abuse. Others wanted coaches to be added to Michigan’s list of people mandated to report suspected abuse.
Still, the legislation won wide support in the wake of hundreds of girls and women — including Olympic gymnasts — accusing Nassar of molesting them under the guise of medical treatment, including while he worked for Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. Nassar was sentenced to prison this year after pleading guilty to sexual assaults and possessing child pornography. SOCCER
