Congressman Tim Ryan issued the following statement after the House Armed Services Committee's Subcommittee on Military Personnel approved a bill today that will address the problem of sexual assault in the military:

"I am pleased that the House Armed Services Committee's Subcommittee on Military Personnel approved a bill today that takes significant steps to address the problem of sexual assault in the military. The bill provides survivors of sexual assault with their own legal counsel who are trained and certified to give them legal advice and representation throughout the investigative and trial process. The bill also takes away the ability of military commanders to toss out convictions for sexual assault.

"I am encouraged that the committee adopted these two important components of the Combating Military Sexual Assault Act (CMSA) that I introduced with Congresswoman Granger and several other members of Congress. I hope that as Congress continues to shape the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act we make it a priority to do everything in our power to prevent sexual assaults in the military, and to provide world-class support for survivors of sexual assault."
