House Democrats support ethics reforms in wake of Fiesta Bowl scandal

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Minority Leader Chad Campbell released the following statement today regarding the Fiesta Bowl investigation:

“House Democrats believe in accountability and transparency for all state legislators, regardless of party, so the representatives Arizonans elected work for them and produce results.

“Ethics reforms are necessary at the capitol to keep politicians in line, working for Arizona and not for special interests. We gladly support Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s call for reforms, such as a gift ban, or disclosing gifts above $25, as well as other changes to ensure transparency and accountability, and we call on our colleagues to join us.

"It's time the state legislature stop working for special interests and focus on what matters – bringing jobs here, getting our economy booming again and funding our public schools."
