Broun Pushes To Require Ethics Training For Members Of Congress

In light of recent allegations surrounding several lawmakers, U.S. Representative Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today introduced a resolution, H. Res.1135, that would require members of Congress to fulfill the same ethics training requirements that senior Congressional staffers complete.

"Ignorance of the law is not a valid excuse for accused criminals, and it cannot be an excuse for members of Congress. The American people expect their Representatives to play by the same rules, but in order to do so, they must first learn them. The House rules already require senior staff to complete ethics training, it only makes sense that their bosses should too."
