A panel of seven human resources professionals is being formed to examine sexual harassment and discrimination in Louisiana.

Governor John Bel Edwards is establishing the task force by way of an executive order he issued yesterday. It is supposed to have a report on the governor's desk by March 1st.

The governor's deputy chief of staff, Johnny Anderson, resigned last month after harassment allegations were brought against him.
