The Governor wants further ethics reforms at the state house in the wake of three separate scandals this summer and fall. Democrat JB Pritzker says that as the legislature comes back for the final three days of fall veto session they should take up new rules concerning lobbyists and their connection to lawmakers.

 

 

Pritzker notes that lobbyists that work on issues in the city of Chicago have to disclose how much they are being paid. Right now lobbyists don’t have to disclose that information for working on issues at the state house.
