Ind. Gov't. - "Sexual harassment training planned for Kentucky lawmakers "

Interesting news re the Kentucky General Assembly, from Tom Loftus of the Louisville Courier-Journal:

FRANKFORT, KY. — State legislators will receive sexual harassment training before the 2014 legislative session begins.

Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, released a statement Friday saying he will require senators to participate in the training as part of required annual pre-session ethics classes for lawmakers.

The office of House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, responded with a statement that said Stumbo has said sexual harassment training will be required for House members.

The fact that legislative staffers had been required to get annual training on the issue — but legislators themselves had not —came to light in August after three female staff members filed sexual harassment complaints against then-Rep. John Arnold, D-Sturgis.
