Statement on Report of Sexual Harassment Claim Against House Member | Speaker.gov

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement regarding a news report of a sexual harassment claim against a Member of the House of Representatives:

“This report is extremely troubling. Last month, I directed the Committee on House Administration to conduct a full review of all policies and procedures related to workplace harassment and discrimination. A Committee hearing last week examining this issue led to a new policy of mandatory training for all members and staff. Additional reforms to the system are under consideration as the committee continues its review. People who work in the House deserve and are entitled to a workplace without harassment or discrimination.”
