Langrock attorney Chris Davis has been named to the newly created state Ethics Commission. Vermont was one of just five states without a commission when Gov. Phil Scott signed the bill in June.
The five-member commission will take in complaints and refer them to the appropriate agency, including the attorney general, state Human Resources Department, the judiciary or the House and Senate Ethics Committees. The commission will also document the complaints and report their number and nature to the Legislature once a year, but will have no investigative or enforcement powers. The commission will also develop a state code of ethics.
