Sexual harassment has become a major issue in both Hollywood, and government, with allegations being made accusing many of unethical behavior. These types of allegations have made their way to Springfield as well, and the Illinois State Legislature are working to stop sexual harassment.

 

State Senator Andy Manar says sexual harassment is difficult to legislate, due to its nature.

 

 

Although difficult to legislate, Springfield has responded to the wave of sexual harassment allegations being made across the country, and has made moves to help ensure it doesn’t become a major issue in the State Capital.

 

 

Manar also says there is more work to be done, and says there are several measures in the works to help further discourage sexual harassment.

 

Manar appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
