PLEASANTVILLE - Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is continuing her fight against sexual assaults on college campuses.

Hochul was joined on Tuesday by Rep. Nita Lowey at Pace University in Pleasantville. Hochul is trying to get the governor's "Enough is Enough" law passed.

The law would standardize sexual assault policies at colleges and universities across New York state.

Lawmakers did not approve the bill during the state budget process, which must be passed by June to become law.
