May 24, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) made the following joint statement Thursday on the passage of the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 Reform Act:

“Today the Senate came together to pass an impressive proposal to update how the Congress addresses workplace claims and protects staff and others from harassment.  This is an important and meaningful reform, and the result of a broad bipartisan consensus that we should do more to hold people accountable, protect staff, and help prevent harassment in the first place. We’d like to thank our colleagues, Senators Klobuchar and Blunt, and many others, for the efforts and determination to make this day possible.”
