The House ethics committee announced Wednesday the special counsel hired to investigate allegations against Speaker Jim Wright had submitted his report to the panel.

The report, which was not made public, was expected to be on the committee's agenda when the panel meets Thursday. The committee will decide if the report warrants further investigation or if the matter can be closed.The committee voted June 9 to look into six issues, primarily involving Wright's financial arrangements for the publication of his book, "Reflections of a Public Man," his intervention with government officials in behalf of Texas savings and loan executives and in behalf of oil and gas interests, plus questions about Wright's use of a Fort Worth condominium owned by the son of a longtime friend and business partner.
