Legislators meet in Butte, work to clarify sexual harassment policy

BUTTE – A bipartisan group of state lawmakers are in Butte this week to tour the Mining City and address a policy issue in the Legislature: the development of a clear sexual harassment policy.

“It’s kind of a tough issue because it’s all about sex. So nobody wants to talk about it or deal with it, so it’s just a sensitive issue, and we want to make sure our policy is completely intact and being followed. And make sure we’re doing everything we need to be doing to have a great policy,” said Sen. Fred Thomas, R-Stevensville.
