Illinois Lawmakers Hurry Toward New Sexual Harassment Law
There could be a new anti-sexual harassment law on the books in Illinois before Thanksgiving. The Illinois House will meet next week in Chicago to talk about a new law aimed at ending the culture of sexism and harassment inside state government. A number of women who work at the Illinois Capitol, including a few lawmakers, have spoken out this week about their experiences with unwanted flirtations or worse. The hearing is set for Tuesday.
