Ethics Initiative Prompts Legislators to Devise Plans

Bob Bernick and Lisa Riley Roche wrote last Thursday in the Deseret News that the legislature is on the "verge of historic ethics actions" because of the citizen initiative petition push. The legislature met in interim meetings last Wednesday and outlined their own reform ideas that would include:
  • Creation of an independent ethics commission.
  • The commission would review ethics charges.
  • Legislative committees could then punish the legislator.
  • The House or Senate would vote on any disciplinary action.
