senate passes controversial harasssment bill

The Senate on Thursday easily passed a bipartisan deal to overhaul Capitol Hill’s sexual harassment system even as civil rights and women’s groups joined House members in knocking the bill as too easy on lawmakers accused of inappropriate workplace behavior.

The Senate approved its harassment legislation by voice vote, setting up likely conference talks with the House over its version of the bill — which is more stringent than the upper chamber’s in several key areas. More critics of the Senate approach emerged on Thursday, with five advocacy groups writing to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) with a series of concerns about the bill and its speedy path to passage.
