Kirsten Gillibrand and Sexual Assault

I first learned about the sexual assault problem in the military from a podcast I listened to while running. I was absolutely appalled by the statistics and had to suspend my run out of outrage.

So, I’m very interested in following the bill proposed by Kirsten Gillibrand (senate D NY) that will take certain military justice cases out of the chain of command. I think this is pretty commonsense, though there is a rival bill to combat sexual assault while leaving the chain of command intact.

If you are concerned about this issue, here are two easy things to do.

1. Track the bill, you can go here and just sign up to get updates about what is happening to Sen. Gillibrand’s bill.

2. Track the senate armed service committee so you can see who is supporting this and who is opposing it. I doubt anyone will outright oppose this bill, though they might vote for its rival bill.
