Washington D.C. – Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) supported bipartisan legislation to overhaul the harassment complaint process in the House of Representatives. H.R. 4924 and H. Res. 724 make significant reforms to the Congressional harassment and discrimination complaint and investigative processes.

“Harassment, abuse, and discrimination in the workplace are unacceptable, and New Yorkers expect far better from those elected to serve,” said Faso. “In particular, I found it appalling that through the years, a small number of members of Congress were able to utilize taxpayer money to settle claims of sexual harassment. These reforms are a productive step to overhauling the institution and making sure unacceptable behavior won’t be covered over with taxpayer dollars.”
