Lawmakers approved a House floor amendment Thursday to require yearly sexual harassment training for all state lawmakers.
The provision would require lawmakers take at least one hour of sexual harassment training each year. Exactly what qualifies as training would be decided by the House Speaker and the Senate President Pro Tem.
Rep. Karlee Macer (D-Indianapolis) says such a move is long overdue.
“And I don’t believe that Indiana has done everything right. But we certainly are on the path to doing so,” Macer says.
