HB109,the governor's bill on ethics passed the legislature today with a unanimous vote on the House floor. I'm proud to have been part of the process. Anchorage KTUU NBC TV news interviewed me on camera after the vote. The following is what I said on TV:

"This is really a landmark day for Alaska. It's a bill whose time had come. And I'd like to congratulate everybody for working together on this. It's been a bipartisan effort, both Republicans and Democrats working together to get this good legislation out," Lynn said. "I'm very, very happy about it. And we've talked about 'must haves' on AGIA (Alaska Gas Pipeline Inducement Act). Well, I think this was a 'must have' for the Legislature."

Obviously, no legislation will make a dishonest person honest. However, this ethics bill draws some bright lines to assist the ethically challenged. It helps repair the foundation of trust between voters and the people they elect, and the trust between elected officials. Good work, well done!
