Bills Passed In MI House Would Prevent Conflicts of Interest

New bills passed in the Michigan House would require elected officials to disclose their personal financial information.

Michigan is one of just two states where lawmakers don’t have to file disclosure reports that can reveal conflicts of interest.

The reports would be available to government committees, and would be kept confidential until the lawmaker left office.

The bills would also ban lawmakers from becoming lobbyists for two years after leaving office.
