Washington State Lawmakers Introduce Ethics Bills
Lawmakers in Washington have introduced two bills to enhance campaign finance disclosure and ethics laws.
Senate Bill 5108 aims to increase transparency of “gray money” by limiting political action committees from receiving 70 percent or more of their contributions from other political committees.
Another proposal, House Bill 1159, seeks to establish revolving door provisions requiring former state officials to take a yearlong “cooling-off” period before they can become lobbyists.
