Discolsure of Lawmaker holdings
The Joint Commission on Public Ethics, JCOPE, has released documents to show what each and every state lawmaker makes privately. The documents show who the politicians work for privately and how much they are compensated.
The documents also show any stock and retirement incomes each lawmaker holds.
The private disclosures were mandated under the 2011 ethics reform law, the same law that was used to create JCOPE. Before the change lawmakers were not mandated to disclose how much they made in the private sector.
