This long overdue, bipartisan bill makes clear that Congress has no tolerance for workplace sexual harassment or discrimination while protecting victims. It also ensures that lawmakers can’t use taxpayer funds to repay settlements stemming from their misconduct.
The existing process Congress uses to settle sexual harassment and workplace discrimination claims and its mandatory cooling of and mediation periods should be maintained. Lawmakers shouldn’t be personally responsible for paying settlements against them.
