‘Erin’s Law’ clears Senate despite concerns about adding an unfunded mandate on schools

(MICHIGAN LIVE) LANSING, MI – “Erin’s Law,” a package of bills aimed at teaching children how to protect themselves against sexual abuse, is headed to the state House after being unanimously approved in the Senate.

But there was some concern that the bills would add another unfunded mandate on the backs of local districts.

Senate Bills 1112-1114 would create a task force made up of legislators, state staff members and experts to make recommendations to school boards addressing child sexual abuse. Districts would be required to create a curriculum.
