Bosma: More lawmaker disclosure may be needed

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana lawmakers may need to disclose more about their personal and financial ties following an Associated Press report about a powerful representative's work helping one of his lobbyist daughter's clients.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma said Thursday that he's considering a change to House disclosure rules after reading about Rep. Eric Turner's efforts on behalf of his daughter.

The AP reported Monday that Utah-based Insure-Rite hired Jessaca Turner Stults to win legislation opening the door for it to win a multi-million dollar state contract screening uninsured drivers.

There's no rule against a lawmaker pushing legislation to benefit family members.

With the end of the 2013 session drawing close, Bosma said he would likely look at any changes over the summer.
