During a confirmation hearing to consider the nomination of Betsy DeVos to be the next Secretary of Education, I had a simple question — one that I wanted to ask as a U.S. Senator and as a father of four daughters. I wanted to know whether the incoming Trump Administration would commit to enforcing current law on combating campus sexual assault by holding perpetrators accountable and helping victims, in accordance with Title IX and my own Campus SaVE Act, which was passed in 2013. Ms. DeVos, replied that it was “premature” to say whether the Administration would enforce the existing law. I will continue to fight to make sure we do not turn back the clock on victims of sexual assault.
