Lobbying reform luncheon set

Amid lobbying and ethics scandals at the national and state levels, both Congress and the N.C. General Assembly are considering sweeping reforms.

A panel of national and local leaders will discuss reform proposals and their chances for passage at a luncheon on May 24 in downtown Raleigh.

The luncheon, hosted by NC Policy Watch, a state government watchdog group, and the NC Coalition for Lobbying Reform, is open to the public at a cost of $10, including a box lunch.

Panelists include Chellie Pingree, president of National Common Cause, Bob Phillips of the NC Coalition for Lobbying Reform, and state Reps. Joe Hackney and Julia Howard, co-chairs of the House Select Committee on Ethics and Governmental Reform.

The luncheon will be held at Exploris Museum at 201 E. Hargett Street in downtown Raleigh from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
