Tilley pre-files ethics legislation
On the same day, Gov. Jay Nixon outlined his ethics reform proposal, which emphasizes the return of campaign contribution limits, House Majority Leader Steve Tilley, R-Perryville, prefiled his own ethics bill, which was first revealed in the Dec. 14 Turner Report.
Tilley's proposal to eliminate elected officials serving as political consultants is similar to Nixon's, but Tilley's bill, HB 1487, will not include the restoration of campaign contribution limits, Tilley said earlier.
At this point, the bill and the summary have not been posted on the House website.
