Rep. Griffin talks about her HB 5659, which makes youth sports coaches, trainers and volunteers in youth athletic activities mandatory reporters of child abuse.  The measure is part of a package of legislation unveiled at a press conference at the Capitol Monday.  The legislation is inspired by the recent sexual assault allegations against former physician Larry Nassar, who has been sentenced to up 175 years in federal and state prison for his crimes against more than 200 victims. Also attending today’s press conference were several of Nassar’s victims.
