Democratic state Senator Dina Titus has proposed a "12-Step Plan" of reform measures she says will restore trust in Nevada's elected officials.
Titus says she wants to ban officials from lobbying their former
colleagues for two years after leaving office. She wants a ban on
cash donations and more frequent disclosure of contributions.
The Las Vegas Democrat is running for governor.
Titus also is proposing prohibiting local officials from
accepting contributions from donors who have a land use, licensing
or permit application pending before the officials.
Her opponent for the Democratic nomination, Henderson Mayor Jim
Gibson, received several donations from developers in his city.
Gibson called Titus' proposals election-year posturing.
He noted the senator did not support one of the ethics reform
bills proposed in the last legislative session.
