Indiana House Passes Bipartisan Ethics Bill
Indiana House legislators unanimously approved a bipartisan ethics bill aimed at maximizing transparency in the General Assembly.
The reform bill broadens what legislators must disclose on financial interest statements and expands reporting requirements regarding lawmakers’ relationships with lobbyists. The bill also tightens the control over state employees seeking employment in the private sector with a company involved with the state.
The bill now heads to the Senate.
