Ethics and lobbying changes move forward in Indiana

insealA bill lowering the disclosure threshold for lobbyists gifts, among other things, advanced in Indiana today.

The bill also would bar the governor from raising campaign contributions during the long, budget-writing sessions of the General Assembly held in odd-numbered years. Lawmakers are already prohibited from fundraising during that time.

Also, anyone with a state contract or bidding on one worth $100,000 or more per year would not be able to donate to the campaigns of people running for state office.
