The Legislature is still working on how to implement the new ethics portion of the state Constitution.
Voters approved the amendment last November. And each of the chambers introduced its own bill to implement the amendment.
A Senate committee is looking at the House’s version.
"I'm hoping that we will, in essence, fill in the blanks, where the measure directed us to set, for example, penalties," said the chairman of the Senate Ethics Committee, Sen. David Hogue (R-Minot).
Hogue said he would also like to see one effective date for the measure.
