New Jersey Considering 'Yes Means Yes' Policy For Colleges
New Jersey may join California in creating a "yes means yes" policy at state-funded universities that requires verbal consent between sexual partnersBy Madison Burke | November 23, 2014
New Jersey might soon create a new policy at state-funded universities that requires verbal consent between partners before sex.
A bill has been introduced at the State House that would withhold funds from colleges and universities unless they adopt an affirmative consent standard.
The measure comes as states and colleges across the country are looking at measures to combat sexual assault on campus.
