Independent commission to recommend changes in 2013
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has created an independent commission responsible for making recommendations to reform state ethics and open records laws.
The executive order establishes an 11-member panel to review several ethics areas including conflict of interest rules, lobbying regulation, and enforcement of existing laws.
The governor expects a report from the commission by January 28, 2013, just weeks after the beginning of the next legislative session.
