(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana House Ethics Committee could meet soon to determine whether a top Republican lawmaker erred in lobbying for his family's nursing home business.
House Speaker Pro Tem Eric Turner of Cicero argued against a nursing home ban that would have hurt his son's business during private meetings of House Republicans in the final days of the legislative session. Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma called last week for a review by the House Ethics Committee.
Ethics Chairman Greg Steuerwald said Wednesday the panel plans to review Turner's case and could meet as soon as the second week in April.
