17th Amendment And Corruption

Chairman Wayne Holland's statement on SB156 contains a really important point. He said this bill would "revisit the old forms corruption that led to the 17th Amendment in the first place". Corruption and bribery were major factors behind the 17th Amendment, which is something Utah's Legislature should remember. Utah's Legislature is already desperately in need of transparency and accountability. Ethics reform proposals are often viewed as personal insults and get nowhere. (except for this years new $5 gift reporting minimum. Good job Rep. Alexander, a step in the right direction.)

How many loopholes does the Alexander bill allow?

The democrats are lucky to have Holland as their chairman. He is a great example.
