Georgia senator's bill would protect Peace Corps workers

Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson, along with a bipartisan group of lawmakers from Texas and California, introduced legislation Thursday aimed at protecting Peace Corps workers who report sexual and other assaults while working in the field. For Isakson, the legislation is the culmination of two years of behind-the-scenes advocacy on behalf of murdered Peace Corps worker Kate Puzey.
