DFL Asks for Legislative Reforms

DFL state legislators are pushing a reform package they says will improve transparency at the Minnesota State Legislature.

The reforms would close loopholes and require elected officials to disclose all sources of income, including pay as a consultant or independent contractor, prohibit party officials from taking public Jobs and end midnight sessions and closed door meetings that make it difficult or impossible for the public to follow the legislative process.

State Representative John Ward of Brainerd supports the reforms.

The package of reforms is being introduced today.
