The count: how much Louisiana taxpayers spent since 2004 to settle harassment claims involving state employees 

$3.9 million

The state Senate Governmental Affairs Committee last week approved anti-sexual harassment bills sponsored by three female legislators — Rep. Barbara Carpenter and Sen. Regina Barrow, both Democrats from Baton Rouge, and Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell. All three bills would require public servants to receive an annual minimum of one hour of education and training on preventing sexual harassment. The training programs would begin in 2019 if the bills pass.
