Public can comment to lawmakers on ethics proposals

Alabama legislators will host a public hearing to allow the public to comment on ethics bills from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday in the historic House chambers in the state Capitol.
People who are interested in commenting can sign up in the House chamber. They can find the bills at www.governor.alabama.gov.
Gov. Bob Riley called a special session for lawmakers to address ethics reforms such as stopping legislators from holding another state job, prohibiting the transfer of money between political action committees, requiring online reporting of lobbyist expenditures on public officials, and limiting the gifts that can be given to public officials and public employees.
He called them into session beginning at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
