Indiana Ethics Bill Introduced with Bipartisan Support
Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma and House Minority Leader Scott Pelath have co-sponsored an ethics bill aimed at improving transparency and reducing conflicts of interest.
The proposal would tighten the rules on waivers for the one-year “cooling off” period for state agency officials taking private-sector jobs dealing with their former departments.
It would also expand the financial disclosure requirements for legislators and require them to disclose any relatives who are lobbyists.
