JUNEAU — The legislative ethics committee will discuss options for collecting unpaid fines levied against lawmakers.
The committee plans to meet Wednesday morning in Juneau.
The committee is expected to address a legal opinion it received on how best to collect unpaid fines and then consider four options.
Those include amending state law, seeking assistance from the Legislative Council, requesting action from the attorney general or exploring how other states collect fines.
Among other agenda items will be a review of ethics disclosures from last year.
The nine-member ethics committee includes legislators and members of the public and is responsible for helping people understand and comply with the Alaska Legislative Ethics Act, including considering complaints regarding alleged violations. The act applies to legislators and most legislative employees.
