House Ethics and OCE

Roll Call has an update on the status of House Ethics Committee rule changes criticized by a number of groups.

Ethics Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and ranking member Jo Bonner (R-Ala.) met Thursday with representatives from more than a half-dozen government reform organizations who voiced concerns over the new rules.

None of those in attendance — including Democracy 21, Brookings Institution, League of Women Voters, Common Cause, Campaign Legal Center, U.S. PIRG or Public Citizen — said they expected the ethics committee would amend its internal rules, but praised the meeting as productive.
