MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican attorney general hopeful Brad Schimel has unveiled a plan to curb crimes against women.

Under the plan, the state Justice Department would provide free date-rape drug testing kits to colleges; advocate for a law that would ensure victims and witnesses are immune form minor drug or alcohol offenses; create a college sexual assault task force; create a sensitive crimes certification for police; and expand sexual assault nurse examiner programs statewide.

Schimel says he would use annual federal grants to fund the initiatives.

Schimel will face Democrat Susan Happ in the Nov. 4 election. Happ’s campaign manager says he’s glad Schimel has “seen the light on campus sexual assaults” and hopes he will join with Happ in supporting women’s abortion rights.
