Kirsten Gillibrand recently introduced the “Military Justice Improvement and Increasing Prevention Act,” which aims to change the way the military handles sexual assault cases by removing the chain of command from the court martial process and is expected to be signed into law. How would the bill reform the military justice system? What issues should lawmakers consider as they finalize the legislation? You can register below.
