Disclosure Rules

The Senate will probably discuss Senator Killpackā€™s Ethics and Disclosure bill tomorrow.

The Senate is ready to amend the original bill so it includes sports events like Jazz tickets and golf games within the disclosure requirements. It will provide more transparency and prohibit lobbying conflicts of interest.

Is it perfect? Probably not. Welcome to the legislative process. It's not good enough to have an idea that's good enough. Your idea has to tumble the magic numbers.

We've been working on this bill since before session started and we think it is a step in the right direction. We know folks have lots of ideas about new rules. But this is the bill that can pass.
