Committee Chairman Says Contract Bill Watered Down

Rep. Jerry Turner of Baldwyn is chairman of the House Accountability, Efficiency and Transparency Committee. He said Monday that the Senate watered down House Bill 825 by removing provisions that would have prevented large contracts from being broken into smaller pieces to avoid scrutiny.

The Senate also removed requirements that public officials file annual ethics reports disclosing gifts from people who are not relatives or friends.
