South Carolina Legislature Passes Two Ethics Bills
South Carolina legislators sent two ethics bills to Gov. Nikki Haley yesterday.
One bill requires officeholders to report private sources of income. The other requires the State Ethics Commission to independently investigate complaints against lawmakers.
House and Senate ethics committees currently oversee campaign finance filings and handle complaints against their colleagues while the State Ethics Commission oversees all other public officials.
