read Carmen's just disappeared diary on pending ethics reform and get on the record with your Rep and Senator and tell them it's time to legislate tighter and clearer restrictions on persons who are compensated by a for-profit or a non-profit organization?
Tell them to make sure that our Secretary of State is instructed to draft and enforce some tight and clear regulations requiring prompt registration and quaterly reporting of each lobbyists expenses and activities and make that information promptly and easily available to the public.
And tell them to give our Secretary of State and our Attorney General appropriate powers to mete out the appropriate punishment to offenders?
Can you just give us a simple yes or no?
If it's a yes, just type up those three little letters in the comment box and call your own Rep and Senator. (Unless you already have.)
If it's a no,not yet, because you want to argue about a specific section you disagree with, then still call your Rep and Senator and share your specific concerns and propose an amendment. And if you want to educate us with a little commentary, that's fine with me.
If it's no, you don't care about this particular government reform proposal then write your own diary to suggest other ways to make our state government more open and responsive.
