ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A new report tracking sexual harassment in the Maryland General Assembly shows there were 11 complaints against state lawmakers over the last year.

The Department of Legislative Services released the report on Thursday after a panel decided to compile an annual report and make it public.

The report comes after a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against national entertainment and political figures.

It's not clear just how many Maryland lawmakers were involved those 11 complaints.

This is the first report of its kind in Maryland.
