Vermont May Establish Ethics Commission
Vermont may soon move off the list of states without an independent ethics commission if new legislation passes this spring.
House Bill 846 establishes the Vermont Ethics Commission, tasked with investigating complaints relating to breaches of legislative ethics law.
The bill also includes revolving door provisions and ethics guidelines for legislators and executive branch employees.
