LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- A Nebraska lawmaker wants to require the state Department of Education to develop a child sexual abuse policy.

The Nebraska Legislature's Education Committee will consider a bill by Hoskins Sen. Dave Bloomfield on Tuesday that would encourage schools to adopt guidelines for handling sex abuse cases.

Bloomfield's bill says the Department of Education would create an example policy that could be replicated by schools leaders who wish to create child abuse policies.

The bill would require schools that adopt child sexual abuse policies to include the policy in the school handbook, teach students about the policy and offer child sexual abuse training to staff.
