A spokesperson for the North Carolina Democrat said Hagan asked Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to report to Congress on the progress his department is making to implement new sexual assault prevention laws passed in the 2013 Defense Authorization Act.

Today, Sen. Hagan conducts the U.S. Senate Armed Services Hearing on Military Sexual Assault. The Senator will question Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey and other top military leaders from each service branch on what is being done to address what she calls “the military sexual assault crisis.”
