Kentucky State Representative Sannie Overly is calling for an independent review of the Legislature's policies regarding workplace behavior in the wake of sexual harassment complaints against Democrat John Arnold of Sturgis.  Overly, chairwoman of the House Democratic Caucus, said yesterday she intends to file a bill next year to mandate the review and create a new personnel system that would ensure a harassment-free workplace.

A special legislative committee has been appointed to investigate those complaints, which could ultimately recommend Arnold's censure or expulsion from the Legislature.
