Government and Ethics
The Reform Party SUPPORTS legislation and rules across all branches of government that enforce the highest ethical standards and effective oversight.
Highest ethical standards and oversight means that elected officials must have as their first loyalty the entire citizenry they represent, not just the people who funded their campaign or who will pad their retirement. This also means that there needs to be clearer separation between elected officials and lobbying and special interest groups. We can not continue the endless recycling of people between elected positions and lobbying groups where there is the clear appearance of conflict of interest.
