WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the House of Representatives passed a bipartisan Resolution, introduced by Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA), which mandates anti-harassment and anti-discrimination education for all Members of Congress and their staff during each session of Congress. Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN), a co-sponsor of the Resolution, released the following statement:
“It is absolutely unacceptable to be subjected to harassment or discrimination of any kind, anywhere. Today’s vote in the House of Representatives is an important and appropriate first step to educate Members of Congress and their staff on inappropriate workplace actions and how to report such conduct.
“Even still, we must do more to protect the victims from this conduct while ensuring due process for the accused. I am committed to continuing to work with my colleagues in the House to improve the workplace called the People’s House and the conduct of those who work in it. With the passage of this resolution, we are one step closer to expressing to the nation that sexual harassment in any capacity is wrong and must be prevented and stopped.”
