JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri lawmakers appear to have reached a deal on a bill revamping political ethics rules.
House and Senate negotiators appeared to agree Wednesday on language restricting the shuffling of money between political committees. There's also apparent agreement on requiring quicker reporting of campaign donations when the legislature is in session.
Negotiators also backed a provision letting the Missouri Ethics Commission launch its own investigations instead of waiting for complaints.
But the latest proposal would not reinstate campaign contribution limits.
The negotiations come a week after House Republicans forced through legislation loaded with politically controversial issues.
