A Texas legislator filed a resolution on Friday calling upon Governor Greg Abbott to direct the Texas Rangers to investigate Baylor Universitys administration and police department following the schools sexual assault scandal.

Rep. Roland Gutierrez (D-San Antonio) filed HR 664 in the Texas House of Representatives urging Abbott to have the Rangers investigate the obstruction of justice surrounding the sexual assault of young female students at Baylor University.

The resolution notes Baylors admission failed to investigate allegations of sexual violence.

The level of cover-up that has been both reported and also admitted at this point is appalling, the resolution states.

The Baptist university has been mired in scandal after revealing systemic failings to address sexual violence that led to the firings and resignations of top officials.

Gutierrez plans to hold a press conference Monday to discuss the resolution.

Baylor spokeswoman Lori Fogleman said it's not university practice to comment on pending legislation.
