Lawmakers to debate ethics bills on Friday

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Lawmakers meet in Montgomery for a third day of talks and negotiations on ethics reform on Friday. They will debate three bills from governor riley's ethics package.
The first bill would clear up campaign finance issues by banning money transfers between political action committees. The second bill is a ban on "pass-thru pork", a way that lawmakers hide funding for their pet projects. The third requires ethics training for every elected official in Alabama.

A House committee set up just for this special session has already given their approval to three bills.
