Help us get more co-sponsors of Representative Leanne Krueger's #MeToo for the General Assembly Act (HB 1000) and Senator Maria Collett's companion bill in the Senate. This legislation, in light of recent public reports of rampant sexual harassment and retaliation in the state legislature, would:
- Establish procedures for keeping investigatory, prosecutorial, and adjudicatory functions separate, as required under state law;
- establish procedures for communicating temporary regulations that are necessary to promptly implement the new procedures; and
- combine current settlement provisions with new provisions relating to the source of payment, personal liability of elected officials, and payment of awards.
It is time for the state legislature to eradicate sexual harassment, abuse, and retaliation from their chambers.
