Ethics Bill Still Unsigned | Georgia Public Broadcasting

Governor Deal is set to sign major legislation Monday morning at the State Capitol. He has just two days left to sign new bills into law. Two yet-unsigned measures involve ethics reform.

One measure that passed this past legislative session will limit lobbyists’ spending on individual lawmakers to $75 per expenditure. But critics and supporters alike say it contains exceptions that may undermine the intent to rein in lobbyists’ power.

Last week Governor Deal said he plans to sign the measure into law. He told the Atlanta Press Club the legislation is a significant step in ethics reform, but not the final step.
