Lobbyists in training over new ethics regulations

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - A new step toward more ethical actions is being taken in Montgomery.

The men and women who influence the bills in the statehouse begin their mandatory ethics training on Monday. The new requirements for lobbyists were among the new regulations passed in the ethics special session.
The 654 people who are officially registered as lobbyists with the State Ethics Commission will get a lesson on the new state laws that limit their spending on elected officials.

Lobbyists who cannot go Monday can still make up training in February and March.
