Ethics Day, part two

Maybe today really is Ethics Day after all. (Although there are more ethics bills coming Friday.)

But the Senate Rules Committee this morning passed one bill that's hard a hard time even getting a hearing in the past. This measure would allow enhanced penalties for public officials who commit felonies.

Bill sponsor Senate Minority Whip Bill Payne, R-Albuquerque, said things are different this year.

"We have more convictions, more talks of investigations ongoing," he said.
