Washington, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives voted unanimously to pass H.Res. 630, introduced by Representative Barbara Comstock (VA-10), which requires all Members of Congress and their staff to complete mandatory anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training during each session of Congress.

“The American people deserve a Congress that leads on important issues,” said Congressman Scott Taylor. “Members and their staff must be held accountable to the same rules they set for everyone else.  It is my sincere hope these reforms will empower victims to speak out and deter future workplace harassment and discrimination.”
