Maryland House Votes to Bolster Laws on Sexual Harassment by Lobbyists
The Maryland House of Delegates unanimously voted on Monday to strengthen the General Assembly’s sexual harassment policies to cover lobbyists.
The bill authorizes a person to file a complaint with the State Ethics Commission against a regulated lobbyist who has sexually harassed a member or employee of the General Assembly, and it also allows a lobbyist to file a complaint against a member of the General Assembly for sexual harassment.
The bill has been referred to the Senate Rules Committee.
