Gov. Perdue To Sign Ethics Bill Monday

North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue is signing into law a measure that aims to improve public trust in state government.

The legislation Perdue is scheduled to sign Monday is the latest response to a series of corruption and campaign finance investigations over the past decade that have rocked the Democrats who control state government.

The legislation toughens penalties for illegal campaign donations above $10,000 and expands personnel information that must be released to the public about state employees.

It does not contain a requirement that state vendors be limited in donating to the political campaign of someone seeking a high state office that has the authority to award contracts.

An earlier spate of scandals produced dramatic ethics and lobbying changes in 2006.
