Gillibrand speaks at hearing on military sexual assault

Posted:

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will chair a subcommittee hearing to examine the impact of military sexual assault on Wednesday.

The hearing will include testimony from victims of sexual assault and military officials.

"While Congress is not in full agreement on the extent of the reforms required to solve this crisis, last year's National Defense Authorization Act took positive steps forward, including 36 separate provisions to address sexual assault in the military, which were supported unanimously, and additional important legislation is still under consideration, including my bill, The Military Justice Improvement Act," said Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

The hearing took place Wednesday at 10 a.m. in 222 Russell Senate Office Building.
