Champion of Ethics Reform

Senator Creighton has championed stronger ethics laws at the state and local level throughout his career. In 2019, he passed the J.D. Lambright Memorial Ethics Reform Act, which is one of the most comprehensive, common sense ethics policies with statewide implications to be signed into law in decades. The bill, HB 1495 creates a framework that local governments can opt-into to ensure greater transparency, and also puts restrictions and ethics requirements on tax-payer funded lobbying.
