Wolf said in a statement Monday that it's part of making the Capitol safe. His office says it's determining which agency will handle such reports, among other aspects of the system.

No public reports of criminal sexual harassments or assaults have emerged from Pennsylvania's Capitol in recent months.

But the Democratic governor says he's heard disturbing stories of threatening and abusive behavior toward women in the Capitol.
