Women who were victims of sexual assault pose for a photo together at the state Capitol in St. Paul in December.

The head of a key state Senate committee said Monday that he wants a bipartisan approach to addressing widespread failures in how sex assault cases are investigated and prosecuted in Minnesota as well as how victims are treated.
