Changes considered in Alaska for reporting for lobbyist meals

Alaska may increase the $15 disclosure threshold for lawmakers receiving meals from lobbyists.  The report is here.

“Is a meal unethical? No. Should it be reported? Well, maybe,” Sen. John Coghill, R-North Pole, told the Anchorage Daily News. “If you spend $100 on a meal, I think people have a right to know. But if you’re just sitting down to a meal with somebody, what’s the big deal? It’s nothing unethical.”
