Speaker Straus says House Administration will create an updated sexual harassment policy

“We will have an updated policy and the women of the Texas House will be at the table to craft it," Chairman Geren told Quorum Report tonight

Straus spokesman Jason Embry tonight released this statement:

“Speaker Straus is directing the House Administration Committee and House Business Office to review the House sexual harassment policy and make or recommend revisions and updates where necessary.

The Speaker is also asking that the House Administration Committee and House Business Office develop, as soon as possible and not later than January 31, 2018, a sexual harassment training program for all House staff, including interns, and a training program for members of the House.

In addition to requiring the Speaker's staff and all central House staff to take part in the training, Speaker Straus will strongly encourage all members to do so and to ensure that their employees take part as well.”
