House and Senate Working on “Honest Services” Amendment

BNA reports here ($) that “[t]he Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced new legislation to close gaps in federal anti-corruption laws created by recent court decisions, and key Senate lawmakers said they now are working closely with their House colleagues to craft a bill that can be enacted into law.”  The bill reportedly includes amendments to the “honest services” mail and wire fraud statute, which Skilling v. United States held includes bribery and kickbacks but not undisclosed self-dealing.
