Most of Arkansas House attends first harassment training

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP)   All but a dozen Arkansas House members have gone through voluntary courses on sexual harassment that are being offered in response to a wave of high-profile misconduct cases nationwide.

Eighty-seven of the House's 99 members attended a course that was offered throughout the day on Wednesday, according to sign-in sheets released by the chamber. A spokeswoman for the House said the other 12 members of the chamber are scheduled to attend a make-up course being offered next week. There is one vacant seat in the 100-member House.

The House paid $2,500 to a Little Rock law firm to conduct the training sessions during the abbreviated fiscal session that began this week.
