The New Hampshire House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to require its members to attend sexual harassment education training, a year after the #MeToo movement cast a spotlight on State House policies.
In a 284-92 vote, members opted to introduce a new rule – House Rule 67 – which would require all legislators and State House staff to “attend in-person education and training regarding sexual and other unlawful harassment and discrimination.”
The training sessions, held at the beginnings of each two-year legislative term, have previously been voluntary and sparsely attended.
