Ethics 6-29-07

Officials convicted of felony misconduct must forfeit their pensions under a bill sent this week to Gov. Mike Easley. The Senate accepted minor changes from the House on the bill, Senate Bill 659. The bill requires officials convicted of a federal or state offense involving corruption or a felony violation of election laws committed in their official capacity to lose their retirement benefits earned in that office.
