BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- While Executive and Judicial branch interns are considered employees of the Commonwealth and trained as such under the state sexual harassment policy. legislative interns are not - and there are hundreds of them.

Senate Minority leader Bruce Turr says that's being reworked as Beacon Hill reckons with issues of sexual harassment. 

"It isn't as if there isn't a mechanism for reporting, but there isn't a policy and there needs to be one."
