Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, debates in favor of ethics rules changes Tuesday in the House that were prompted in part by three complaints against him in the past year; the rule changes won the unanimous, 70-0 support of the House. They include a provision covering ethics violations for “conduct unbecoming a member” of the House, something ethics committee members said they wished they’d had for the past year.
