Reform for Illinois executive director Alisa Kaplan faced questions on Monday from Rep. Katie Stuart and Rep. Ann Williams about ethics proposals under consideration this year.
For months, state lawmakers have said approving an ethics overhaul law is a top priority. But since the 102nd General Assembly kicked off in January, there has been little movement on the issue.
That began to change Monday, when members of the House Ethics and Elections Committee held a subject matter hearing. Rather than advancing ideas that have been discussed for more than a year, Democrats on the committee expressed skepticism about provisions under consideration that would crack down on lobbying and statements of economic interest.
