Responsible Settlements for Victims and Taxpayers Act

This bill amends the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 (CAA) to require Members of Congress to: (1) reimburse the Treasury for amounts paid as awards or settlements for violations of CAA rights and protections against acts of sexual harassment or sexual assault committed personally by Members of Congress, and (2) use their Thrift Savings Plan agency contributions as a source of reimbursement if this requirement has not been met within 180 days of payment of the award or settlement.
