So this new ethics bill has passed the senate and is on it’s way for the president’s signature.  Which I don’t doubt it will get.

SENATE VOTES FOR SWEEPING ETHICS BILL

The Senate voted to make lawmakers disclose more about their efforts to fund pet
projects and raise money from lobbyists. Some say the bill, which now goes to
President Bush, could be the biggest advance in congressional ethics in decades.

However I can’t help wondering just exactly how much this bill has in the way of meaningful reform and what enforcement provisions are built into it?

“Never trust a body that can vote it’s own raises without allowing the public a say in whether they get them or not and if so, how much.”
