St. Rep. Demmer says ethics measures passed Thursday fall short

St. Rep. Tom Demmer has been speaking out about ethics reform for a few weeks now. He’s not done just because some measures passed the legislature Thursday. The Dixon Republican says the Democratic-sponsored measures don’t go far enough.

Republicans intensified their push for ethics reforms after St. Rep. Luis Arroyo, a Chicago Democrat, resigned last month. He’s been charged with bribery.
