By now, you all know that I’m dead set against unnecessary ethics legislation that is pushed session after session. I prefer the convict-and-prosecute-the-criminals approach to passing feel good legislation that won’t change a thing.
With that said, I can’t imagine how those debating the ethics legislation could possibly say, “no” to the webcasting of their deliberations:
The New Mexico Independent is going to attempt to webcast Friday’s ethics reform hearing being held by the Senate Rules Committee. The big question is whether the powers-that-be will allow it to happen.
Kind of hard to make the case for passing ethics reform if you tell the people you don’t want them to see what you’re doing. Don’t you think?
