(National Conference of State Legislatures)
The Center for Ethics in Government was organized in 1999 to address the most critical, fundamental and far-reaching problem facing state legislatures: the loss of public trust and confidence in representative democracy. The center is nonpartisan, nonprofit and funded by NCSL’s Foundation for State Legislatures. The mission of the center is to be a leader in restoring confidence in representative government by promoting ethical behavior for state legislators, staff, lobbyists and advocates. The center champions ethical principles in the legislative process by developing ethical standards for legislators and advocates; conducting training programs in values-based ethical decision making; maintaining information on each state’s ethics and lobbying laws and rules; tracking legislative ethics in the media; cultivating a network of speakers and authors; holding forums to address issues of ethics and public integrity; preparing legislative analyses of ethics and lobbying laws; and studying trends.
