Loertscher: ‘No legislator has a personal agenda’

Rep. Tom Loertscher, chairman of the House Ethics Committee, responded to vice-chair Rep. Wendy Jaquet's comments, saying, "I don't think there's any legislator that has a personal agenda." Lawmakers "tend to find issues that they are passionate about," he said. That doesn't mean they have conflicts of interest.
