It’s unanimous: Indiana likely to get new ethics and lobbying rules

The Herald Bulletin reports that the Indiana Senate voted 50-0 to approve new ethics and lobbying rules.

The measure would bar lawmakers from becoming lobbyists for one year after their terms expire and require lobbyists to report any gifts worth $50 or more — including meals, drinks and tickets to events — instead of the current $100 limit. It also bars incumbents or candidates for statewide office from raising campaign funds during budget-writing legislative sessions.
