COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A panel led by two former attorneys general is releasing its recommendations on how to overhaul South Carolina's ethics laws.
The committee created by Gov. Nikki Haley is to give its report Monday. Former attorneys general Henry McMaster and Travis Medlock co-chaired the committee expected to give its advice on topics ranging from public officials' income disclosure to public records to campaign fundraising.
Haley has said she'll support whatever the group recommends.
The panel is 1 of several such study committees. The House Republican and Democratic caucuses each have one, as do senators. Lawmakers of both parties say ethics reform is a priority this year.
