The New York State now says education officials are falling behind in implementing a new law that sets policies for reporting and investigating sexual assaults on college campuses.

The news comes after Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli's office released an audit Thursday.

It found that while the State Education Department is making progress on the "enough is enough" law enacted in 2015, the department will miss some of its deadlines.

Auditors say one of the key reports on the number of sexual assaults on college campuses may be two years late.

The department now says it is working closely with colleges to make sure the law is implemented in a more timely manner.
