State legislators are cracking down on how colleges and universities respond to allegations of sexual assault.

State house and senate officials agreed Tuesday to enforce harsher rules which aim to close loopholes found in previous college campus safety laws passed in recent years.

Under the proposed legislation, institutions would be required to fire employees who don't report sexual misconduct, harassment and abuse allegations or who make reports that are knowingly false.

The new law comes after LSU faced months of backlash flowing the Title IX scandal.
