There is a hearing of great interest next week. We should all be greatly interested in seeing an ethics commission for the state of ND. The number of inaccuracies presented on the Senate floor call for a review of ethics but there is no entity to file a complaint. As an example, Senator Berry stated on the floor that 2305 is not intended to close the one abortion clinic in ND. But, if you were to review the materials from the bills proponent, North Dakota Right to Life, you will see they are promoting the bill as a means to close the clinic. We need to stand strong to call for an ethics commission.
Relating to the establishment of a state ethics commission; and to provide a penalty.
