§ 143.2. Legislative findings and declaration of policy
The General Assembly finds as follows:
(1) Where government is based on the consent of the governed, every citizen is entitled to have complete confidence in the integrity of his government,
(2) It is deemed by the General Assembly to be the duty of each member, officer, or employe of the legislative branch to help earn and honor that trust by his own integrity and conduct in all official actions,
(3) Although the vast majority of these public servants are dedicated and serve with high integrity, most of them would welcome a code of ethics to clearly guide them in areas which are not now clearly defined, and
(4) It is the desire of the General Assembly to protect the public confidence in its Legislature, to establish a guide for all legislative members, officers and employes in decisions of personal interest conflicts and to curb any tendencies for exploitation of official position.
