The House of Representatives has approved a bill (HB 1242) that would make it clear that state Transportation Board members serve under the same ethics disclosure rules as legislators.
They must file personal disclosure forms. And lobbyists that buy them meals, travel or gifts must file reports on it, said the bill’s sp0nsor, Rep. Mark Hamilton (R-Cumming). Some believed the board members already fell under such rules, but not all thought so and not all board members followed them, Hamilton said.
The bill passed 158-0.
