Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement after the House unanimously passed a bill enstating annual sexual harassment training:

“No one—under any circumstances—should feel uncomfortable, intimidated, or targeted at work, especially in the People’s House. Members, staff, interns, and fellows of the House of Representatives should expect to serve the people in a workplace with the highest standards. Today’s unanimous vote to mandate yearly sexual harassment training for members and staff is an important step to ensure Congress is a safe and respectful work environment for everyone. The House Administration Committee will continue its work to review and recommend updates to employment rules that govern the House of Representatives so that everyone who has the honor of working in Congress is free from harassment.”
