Melissa Hortman, state representative, district 36B
House Republican Majority Leader Joyce Peppin proposed adding a single new line to the Minnesota Human Rights Act’s definition of sexual harassment: “An intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment does not require the harassing conduct or communication to be severe or pervasive.” DFL Minority Leader Melissa Hortman in the House and Senator Karin Housley, R-St. Mary’s Point, in the Senate introduced identical bills with her statement. Representative Hortman will discuss the outcome of the legislation and how it will affect the legislature, state government, and employment.
Representatives from Cornerstone and the Brooklyn Park Police Department will also talk
about their policies.
