State senators have passed legislation expanding sexual harassment laws to small businesses.

Right now, they are currently exempt.

However, that may not be the end of the story.

Assembly leaders teamed the measure up with a broad women’s equality bill that includes an abortion provision.

Senators object to the pairing and are asking for separate votes on each item.

Assembly leaders have so far refused.
