Speaker Ryan said "that the House will require anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training for all members and their staffs," AP reports. "The announcement came just hours after a hearing in which two female lawmakers spoke about sexual misconduct involving sitting members of Congress."

"The move comes days after the Senate unanimously approved a measure requiring all senators, staff and interns to be trained on preventing sexual harassment."
