As I told the Inlander, I believe it's my job to put a stop to the issues of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior in the Congressional workplace and elsewhere. Two weeks ago, I co-sponsored and supported a resolution in the House to require all staff, officers and representatives to undergo yearly anti-harassment training. Each one of us needs to be doing our part to lead by example and to restore trust in one another.
Today I voted in favor of requiring all Members, officers and staff to complete mandatory anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training each session. The reports of sexual harassment are deeply troubling and that kind of behavior is unacceptable. I'm glad the House is taking steps to make sure our work place is safe and secure for everyone.
Our veterans were willing to put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms - now its our turn to give them the care they deserve. This is why I've introduced legislation that requires VA medical staff to report directly to state licensing boards when they witness unethical or unacceptable behavior.
Thank you Carolyn for your support of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The hardworking men and women of America deserve a tax code that puts them first. We’ve created a plan that rewards hard work, encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, and levels the playing field so that everyone plays by the same rules. Read Carolyn's letter here.
