MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul visited Aurora Sinai Medical Center in Milwaukee on Monday, June 6, to highlight the new sexual assault kit tracking for sexual assault survivors. 

The new system is designed to make sure victims of sexual assault know exactly where in the process their kit is in order to reduce the backlog for the examination of those kits.

"This is part of our broader effort to strengthen Wisconsin's response to sexual assault. I'm really proud of the progress we're making and we're going to continue to keep making progress on this issue," said AG Kaul. 

In addition to the new tracking system, Gov. Tony Evers signed new laws last year that mandates the examination of those kits within a certain length of time.
