Illinois Lt. Gov. Simon pushing ethics reform package
Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon says the General Assembly should take action on an ethics reform package before the legislative session ends.
Simon spoke at a business luncheon downtown Chicago on Wednesday. She says lawmakers have many important issues to tackle before the session is scheduled to end May 31, but they "cannot allow ethics reform to fall to the wayside."
Simon supports legislation sponsored by Sen. Dan Kotowski, a Democrat from Park Ridge. His bill would require elected officials to disclose more information about their financial interests.
Simon is a Democrat from Carbondale. She announced in February she will not seek re-election, but she left open the possibility she will run for another office.
