STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX -- House Democratic Leader Rebecca Rios, D-Phoenix (District 27), released the following statement this morning in response to recent reported allegations by Rep. Michelle Ugenti-Rita of sexual harassment against House Appropriations Chairman Don Shooter:

“These allegations are very serious. We are calling on the Speaker and House Leadership to convene a bi-partisan investigation team that will thoroughly investigate these allegations, as well as hear the concerns of other people about their own experiences with Rep. Shooter. The investigation must allow everyone impacted to feel comfortable and safe in coming forward with information without fear of reprisal. We look forward to participating in that process and in working with the speaker on continuing to create a safe and productive workplace.”
