Senate Bill 29
149th General Assembly (2017 - 2018)
Senate Executive 3/21/17
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PUBLIC INTEGRITY.
This Act makes several changes to the law governing the conduct of members of the General Assembly, as a first step to addressing the troubling ethics scores Delaware received in the 2015 State Integrity Investigation by the Center for Public Integrity and Global Integrity. Section 1 removes from the Code the language that exempts members of the General Assembly from the obligations of the State Employees’, Officers’ and Officials’ Conflict of Interest and Code of Conduct rules. It also eliminates a reference to Resident Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. Section 2 adds to the Legislative Conflicts of Interest chapter a provision that expressly limits a legislator’s use of public assets for private or partisan political purposes.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
