GA - Committee slices, dices ethics bill
Committee slices, dices ethics bill | ajc.com: "Georgia's ethics laws have been rated among the weakest in the country. Georgians have told pollsters they want reform. Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue has said passing ethics legislation is one of his top priorities.
