House leadership discussing rule changes on harassment as legislative fix looks uncertain

House Republican spokesperson Steve Miskin said that the changes around sexual harassment would apply to both staffers and members could be implemented soon.

“We’ve been in very strong discussion with Democratic leaders in changing House Rules and having a unified policy,” Miskin said.
