That the last week brought news of ethics reform for Hoosier state government is nothing new.
What was different was that the news was encouraging.
According to state records, government officials have been issuing fewer waivers that would let state employees take related jobs in the private sector before a yearlong wait.
So far this year, just one waiver has been granted. That’s in contrast to the past decade, where about 10 waivers were allowed each year.
