(INDIANAPOLIS) - A sexual harassment policy for state senators should be finalized by the end of the week.

The two-page policy declares the Senate won't tolerate members making unwanted advances or trying to trade sexual favors for votes, nor will it allow retaliation for filing a complaint in good faith.

It also bans any sexual contact with interns, even if it's consensual.

A final Senate vote is expected Thursday and would create the first-ever sexual harassment rules for Indiana legislators.

The House is expected to approve a similar policy this week.
