Shaheen, Ayotte urge support for military sex assault prosecution reform
Democrat Shaheen is an original co-sponsor of the Military Justice Improvement Act, an effort to remove the decision to prosecute sexual assault cases from the military chain of command.
Her bill, sponsored by Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is supported by generals and survivors of sexual assault, she said.
Both Shaheen and Ayotte are members of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
