Peter Corroon on Ethics Reforms

Today at the state capital, Salt Lake County Mayor and Utah Governor candidate Peter Corroon outlined critical ethics reforms needed in this state. Rob Miller from The Utah Amicus reports on the  the 5 reforms presented by Corroon:

  1. Immediately limit the amount an individual or entity can give to a state-wide candidate to $10,000 and $5,000 for a legislative race, and prohibit state contractors (people who financially benefit from state contracts) from donating to state wide candidates and legislative candidates.
  2. Immediately ban all gifts to statewide elected officials and legislators.
  3. Immediately end of the personal use of campaign funds.
  4. Stop the revolving door by giving legislators a cooling off period of 2 years before they can lobby their former colleagues.
  5. Create an independent ethics commission to address ethical violations by legislators and state wide elected officials.
