WSB Radio – Mixed reviews for Georgia’s new ethics report card

By Sandra Parrish
Atlanta — Georgia boosts its ranking on a report card that measures the risk for corruption in state government.

But William Perry, founder of Georgia Ethics Watchdogs, tells WSB’s Sandra Parrish he believes changes in methodology used by CPI is the reason for the state’s improvement.
“If you take away parts of a test that a state previously failed, obviously their score is going to get better and that’s what’s happened in this case,” he says.
Perry says while gift caps are a good thing, there are loopholes in the law and no enforcement because the ethics commission does not have its own budget.
