From his very wordy (30,927 words!) Budget/State of the State Address:
A year ago, I outlined my vision for real, lasting ethics reform. It’s time to pass ethics legislation this year.
Nobody should hold the title of both legislator and lobbyist at the same time.
We need meaningful disclosure of conflicts of interest.
We must end the General Assembly’s revolving door allowing legislators to get paid as lobbyists the day after they leave office.
Restoring the public’s trust is of paramount importance. There is too much that needs to be done. If not for the pandemic, this would have happened last year. With a real legislative session and remote or in person hearings, we need to get this done.
