Missouri Ethics Bill Moves Through House
A Missouri ethics bill, being fast-tracked through the House, cleared committee yesterday with just three dissenting votes.
The bill would prohibit legislators from receiving certain gifts from lobbyists. Exemptions to the proposed ban would include honorary plaques, flowers and gifts customarily received by someone before they became a legislator.
The bill is just one of a handful of ethics bills on the legislative agenda. The measure could hit the House floor as early as Thursday.
