News conference urges action against lawmakers accepting gifts
At 10:00 AM Monday at the Capitol Building, two legislators will host a news conference urging action against accepting gifts. Currently, State Government officials receive cash, all-expense paid trips and events tickets.
In a bi-partisan effort, Democratic State Senator Rob Teplitz and Republican State Representative George Dunbar are teaming up with other members of the Government Reform Caucus.
Their goal is to highlight several measures that would limit or ban public officials from accepting gifts and cash. The ban would apply to all state elected officials and state employees
