The Senate and House on Wednesday passed two bills that came out of the House investigation into former Attorney General John Swallow. Both now are on their way to the governor for his signature.
HB394s2, which passed 26-1 in the Senate and the House 73-0, significantly expands reporting of campaign contributions and potential conflicts of interest.
"This is a very, very important piece of legislation. It will govern the way that you conduct yourselves in the future as an elected representative of the people," Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem, said on the Senate floor Tuesday. "It will also govern the way our state officers are governed as we deal with campaigns and campaign accounts."
