Who should investigate sexual assault in the National Guard?

Calif. State Sen. Alex Padilla
The Veterans Affairs Committee of the California State Senate has approved a bill that would require civilian law enforcement investigation of sexual assault allegations arising in the California National Guard, reports NBC Bay Area. The bill was proposed by State Sen. Alex Padilla. According to NBC:
The California National Guard has adopted a rule requiring outside investigations of military sexual assault, but Padilla’s legislation would put the practice into law. Lt. Col. Darrin Bender, the Guard’s chief state policy and liaison, said he anticipates that the Guard will support the proposed law.
