NYS Senate Passes Missing College Student and Campus Violence Reporting Law
New York's Senate has passed a bill that would require state colleges to inform law enforcement of a missing student or a violent felony within 24 hours.
 
The Republican-led Senate unanimously passed the measure on Wednesday and the Assembly passed the updated College Safety Act in March. It's now awaiting the signature of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
 
The Legislature initially passed the College Safety Act in 1999 after the disappearance of University at Albany student Suzanne Lyall.

It requires colleges and universities to have plans for notifying local law enforcement of any violent felony offense or missing person on campus. But it didn't require the schools to actually report such incidents to outside authorities.
