Ethics 7-13-07

The full House is prepared to consider a bill that would require candidates for elected office to disclose any felony convictions they may have. The committee on Election Law and Campaign Finance Reform, of which I am a member, amended the bill, Senate Bill 1218, to clarify that felony convictions do not permanently disqualify a person from running for public office. The Senate approved the bill in May.
