House to mandate sexual harassment training for lawmakers

The House will require all lawmakers and staff to undergo training to prevent sexual harassment, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced Tuesday.

"Going forward, the House will adopt a policy of mandatory anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training for all members and staff," Ryan said.

As we work with the Administration, Ethics, and Rules committees to implement mandatory training, we will continue our review to make sure the right policies and resources are in place to prevent and report harassment.”

Senate lawmakers announced this week they will also require training to curb sexual harassment.

Current rules do not require any mandatory training for lawmakers although lawmakers and staff undergo ethics training.
