Next moves for Utah ethics reform

The Deseret News has an update on ethics legislation moving forward.

“A few tweaks will be made” on the five bills, said House Minority Leader Kevin Garn, R-Layton, who shepherded them through the House.

One substantial change was agreed upon, he added.

Garn’s lobbyist gift bill will be amended to allow lawmakers to take a trip paid for by lobbyists, as long as the costs are publicly reported along with the legislator’s name.
