Special Legislative Inspector General Appointed
Recent calls for the appointment and confirmation of a Legislative Inspector General came to fruition over the weekend as the Legislative Ethics Commission approved the appointment of Julie B. Porter to serve as the Special Legislative Inspector General.
The position had been vacant since 2015, leaving any complaints filed with that office on hold. It wasn’t until testimony during a recent House committee hearing that lawmakers began calling for swift action to fill the vacated role.
Porter’s appointment took effect immediately and will expire on June 30, 2018.
