The Citizens First Congress tells me that last week's word on the death of a proposed ethics bill was no longer operative. There will be another try tomorrow to make it impermissible -- with small financial penalties for violations -- for a member of a state board or commission to knowingly vote on an issue in which the member, his family or his employer has a financial interest.
How hard should this be?
But, see, the Farm Bureau and the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce oppose this legislation. Do you think this could mean that state board members routinely vote with conflicts of interest?
Say it ain't so.
