A bill to put some teeth in the state law regarding mandatory financial disclosures by executive-branch employees and board members is dead for this year.
The bill, HB 150, originally called for a $5,000 fine for non-compliance, but the House amended the bill to reduce the fine to $50, passing it on a voice vote in March.
The Senate, however, voted recently to retain the bill within the Executive Departments and Administration Committee for further study.
