Missouri Lawmaker Outlines Ethics Reform Proposal
Missouri Rep. Kip Kendrick wants to see his seven-point ethics reform proposal introduced in the House.
The proposal bans gifts from lobbyists, amends the state’s revolving door policy for legislators seeking to become lobbyists, imposes term limits for statewide officeholders, prohibits the giving or solicitation of political contributions during a legislative session, prohibits someone no longer seeking office from maintaining a candidate committee, restricts the use of campaign funds, and broadens the Missouri Ethics Commission’s enforcement authority.
Each part of the proposal will be pre-filed as a separate bill. He is working to find seven House Democrats to pre-file the bills.
