Michigan State University granted an extension to comply with House inquiry into Nassar failings

The Michigan House of Representatives today did not receive information from Michigan State University in response to the official request made on January 25, 2018. The university had been given a deadline of February 9, 2018 to turn over the information. Michigan State University instead requested a short extension to collect and provide all requested information. State Reps. Klint Kesto and Kim LaSata have granted that extension in order to receive full disclosure. Michigan State University will turn over all records regarding allegations made against Larry Nassar in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 by Wednesday, February 14, 2018. State Rep. Klint Kesto, chairman of the Law and Justice Committee, and state Rep. Kim LaSata, chairwoman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Higher Education, today released the following statement: “This information is important to our ability to improve state law and build a better, safer system for crime victims and students. We look forward to reviewing this information, finding points of failure in the university’s process and beginning work on important reforms that can ensure these mistakes will never be made again. “We fully anticipate all requested information being turned over by Wednesday. If it is not, our committees will meet shortly to discuss the next steps in compelling the university to do the right thing.” #####
