(CNN) - The U.S. Senate on Monday voted 97 to 0 in approving modest reforms
aimed at strengthening prosecution of sex assaults in the military.
Last week, senators blocked legislation that would have dramatically
altered the way serious crimes in the military, like sexual assault and
rape, are handled.
The newly approved bill now goes to the House for consideration.
