Iowa Senate OKs Military Crime Report Bill

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A bill giving victims more power to report sexual abuse and other crimes involving state military personnel has received the approval of the Iowa Senate.

The Senate voted 47-0 to approve the legislation, which now goes to the House.

Under the bill, state military forces would have to file an annual report with the governor and the Legislature detailing sexual abuse allegations within the forces. Victims would also receive more freedom to report such situations involving military members, as it would be illegal for military commanders to interfere in reports made to local law enforcement agencies.

Democratic Sen. Steve Sodders, who sponsored the bill, says the measure is one of the first of its kind and a good first step to making Iowa a national leader in such efforts.
