SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Assembly and Senate lawmakers are joining to address allegations of rampant sexual misconduct at the California Capitol for the first time as a unified front.

A joint legislative panel will meet Wednesday to discuss reforming the Legislature's policies for handling sexual harassment allegations. Until now, the two chambers have worked separately. The panel will hear from national and state experts and take public comment.

The committee's meeting comes as the Legislature continues to grapple with allegations of harassment that prompted two lawmakers to resign and another to take a paid leave of absence.

Democratic legislative leaders have promised to release details about lawmakers and high-level staffers who have been disciplined for sexual harassment. They have not set a date for releasing the information.
