As someone who works in the field of ethics and corporate governance, this is very concerning to me. IMO the legislature should be leading and setting an example for other sectors, but instead we get this. It sends a very bad message and sets the tone for others to assume it's okay to skirt ethical standards. Not good at all.

This bill came along because the lawmakers kept reading about the swag bags at awards shows for all the celebrities, and got jealous.

Agree 1,000%. Brawley needs to be re-retired... along with any member of the GA who would vote for this bill.
