Office of Congressional Ethics To Meet

The Hill has news on the Office of Congressional Ethics.

According to the rules adopted Friday, The OCE will conduct preliminary reviews of ethics complaints and make recommendations to the full committee for further investigation and action. It can take complaints from the public and other members of Congress and staff but also can initiate reviews on its own. Some ethics watchdogs criticized its lack of subpoena power last year during the debate over its creation.
