GeorgiaThe House of Representatives has passed ethics legislation to bar lobbyist gifts to individual lawmakers and enact new rules on lobbyist registration.

House Bill 142 passed 164-4 on Monday, February 26, 2013 and now goes to the Senate.

Critics hope the Senate provides a limit for the gift ban exceptions, which allow for unlimited gifts to groups of legislators such as committees and caucuses.
