    Wouldn't a "Nay" vote be very telling? What does that say about you and your values (if not your past) if you vote against the bill—and what kind of twisted reasoning would it take to explain your opposition? You'd think this would be the type of bill that can't help but pass. You'd think.

    Can we add a requirement for Presidential behavior to be included?

    This is a great Idea, perhaps it will influence Utah into passing ethics they only talk about it.

    Chris's own party will stop this from happening.

    The bill seems like an attempt to divert attention from the troubling fact that taxpayers are funding these settlements in the first place.

    So why do the taxpayers pay for the indiscretion of elected officials? Our latest Senator to get picked off was justifying his harassment settlement as being funds allocated to him to operate his office. These are the people that pass laws and create penalties for the citizens to live by and yet they either exclude themselves from the law or somehow believe they are above the law. Drain the swamp.

    This is the first time I actually support something my representative (Chris Stewart) has proposed. I am skeptical, however, that it will even be considered, let alone passed.

    I would like it if they thought the same about all agreements. If we were allowed to know about all of them then maybe we could trust them.

    The ethics and standards are already on the books, they need to enforce the rules and laws they blatantly ignore.

    This is a good bill, and one that should have been made and passed decades ago. This reflects common sense and common decency. Which is why the GOP controlled government won't pass it.
