Good. The bill the Senate passed, though an improvement over the debacle released by the Senate “Ethics” Committee (thanks in large part to the praiseworthy efforts of Sen. Eldridge), is still a step in the wrong direction. Why on earth do they think that watering down the Ethics Commission is (a) a good idea, or (b) going to send the right signal to the public?
The conference committee has its work cut out for it. Don’t screw this one up, folks. There’s a lot riding on it.
