Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Representative Martha McSally released the following statement today after the House passage of H. Res. 630—a measure she cosponsored to crack down on sexual harassment and require Members of Congress and their staff to regularly complete anti-harassment training:

“Employers across this nation are required by various laws to prevent sexual harassment by providing mandatory training—and yet Members of Congress aren’t required to do the same thing to ensure safe work environments? The double standards and special treatment need to stop. Sexual harassment is intolerable in our military, it is intolerable in our schools, it is intolerable in private sector workplaces, and it should be intolerable in Congress. Members of Congress should never be above the law. Those who craft our laws must lead by example, and that’s what this resolution is about.”
