The Senate passed a bill that would force government officials to pay there own sexual harassment settlements.

The Washington Examiner: 

The Senate on Thursday unanimously passed a bipartisan bill that would overhaul decades-old rules for reporting and punishing sexual harassment and other workplace violations.

The bill would require lawmakers, not the federal government, pay harassment settlements.

A similar measure passed the House in February, but the two bills are not identical, so a compromise will have to be reached and passed again through both chambers.
