Maintain state's tough legislative ethics rules

There's good news and bad news in the world of legislative ethics. The good news for Kentuckians is that no member of the Kentucky General Assembly has been indicted or convicted by a state or federal criminal law enforcement agency for misusing his or her legislative office since the early 1990s. The bad news for Americans is that legislators from neighboring Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and many other states are still being investigated, indicted on and convicted of state and federal crimes.
