New York lawmakers passed sweeping sexual harassment legislation on Wednesday night, along with a bill extending the statute of limitations on second- and third-degree rape to close out the legislative session.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) plans to sign the bills in coming days, according to a spokesperson.

“Under the status quo, sporadic sexual harassment is permissible as long as it is not pervasive — that’s unacceptable and we are changing it,” Cuomo said in a statement.
