The case of disgraced former Michigan State University doctor Larry Nassar has prompted state lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to look at funding, policy and structural changes to address the issue of sexual assault on college campuses.

"We can say all we want about whatever it is, but we have to actually act, we have to do, and that's what we're doing today", Engler said.

John Engler speaks after being selected as interim president of Michigan State University, Jan. 31, 2018.

Numerous legislative items laid out have been slowly making their way through the Capitol since the Nassar scandal began to emerge, with lawmakers saying there is bipartisan support for the majority of the proposed changes.

Charity body orders Oxfam inquiry
Dame Barbara Stocking, head of Oxfam in 2011, told the BBC the charity had a long record of having a good code of conduct. While the accusations go back to 2011, it has been in the news after the Times published a report about it on February 9.

"I viewed with great concern a recent ESPN report that gathered considerable national attention in no small part because it showed a promotional graphic of our head football and men's basketball coaches with Larry Nassar". The Michigan attorney general's office, the Department of Education, both chambers of the U.S. Congress and the NCAA are among the groups now investigating Michigan State's response to Nassar and sexual assault complaints in general. "I hope that MSU can soon respond in full and affirm the integrity and probity that has been the hallmark of these two respected coaches".

Dantonio denied allegations of mishandling any sexual assault cases in a previously unscheduled news conference held hours after the Outside the Lines report was published. The coaches were asked to refrain from comment while the reports were examined.

According to MLive, Tom Izzo agreed with Engler, saying, "I only saw a little bit of it, but the part I saw, I agreed with what he said".
