Christina Sivret (Executive Director, Vermont Ethics Commission) joined the Senate Government Operations Committee to discuss a provision they wanted added to H.125. The underlying bill delt with boards and Commissions, but the Committee had previously indicated that this was a good vehicle for the language she was looking for.
She explained their recommendations as around municipalities and how they presented a gap in the current ethics oversight framework. Her request for Commission to come back next year to make a proposal to include either a general report or specific recommendations related to ethics oversight for municipalities. She looked to the Committee for clarification on whether they were "at a place" for a detailed framework or just a general report.
All the Committee members were in agreement that they wanted to move forward on this. Sivret noted that she would re-summit the detailed language she had provided previously.
