Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act

Floor Speech

Date: Nov. 21, 2019
Location: Washington, DC

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. HARDER of California. Madam Chair, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Madam Chair, my amendment is going to ensure that nothing in this act shall be construed to limit or prevent healthcare workers from reporting violent incidents to appropriate law enforcement.

This is really critical because, obviously, this amendment is going to really put some new restrictions on workplace violence. It is so critical to ensure we do that. But we also want to make sure that there are safeguards in place to make sure that reporting is not only going to the law enforcement agencies but also around the rest of the community. That is why our amendment is so critical here.

Ms. FOXX of North Carolina. Madam Chair, I claim the time in opposition, although I am not opposed to the amendment.
