“Bipartisan Task Force Unveils Proposals to Strengthen Government Ethics, Rule of Law”

Brennan Center:

The National Task Force on Rule of Law and Democracy – a group of former public servants and policy experts housed at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law – today laid out a vision for strengthening government ethics and the rule of law. Their first report includes specific proposals, such as requiring presidential candidates to disclose tax returns and creating a stronger enforcement mechanism for ethical breaches. The report was launched today at an event at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

The Task Force, chaired by former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman, outlines these proposals as part of an effort to turn what have traditionally been unwritten rules and norms of government behavior into commonsense, bipartisan laws.
