- ETHICS REFORM IN 2015: BUILDING ON A FOUNDATION
We have mourned the sad failure of our General Assembly to pass ethics reform in the past two sessions. However, it is time to look toward the new session in 2015, and the House of Representatives is off to a very promising start. Following on the suspension of Speaker Bobby Harrell, Acting Speaker Jay Lucas (R-Darlington) has pulled House members back to Columbia to begin work on both ethics reform and on the excessive concentration of power in the office of the Speaker that has helped to feed ethical problems. There is reason for considerable optimism about this effort. Acting Speaker Lucas has given very well-defined charges to all involved in laying the groundwork for 2015.
