Haley, Wilson unveiling ethics reform package

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Gov. Nikki Haley and Attorney General Alan Wilson are flying around South Carolina to unveil a package of ethics reforms.

The two start Wednesday in North Charleston before continuing on to Myrtle Beach and Greenville before meeting with reporters at the Statehouse in Columbia.

Haley has been the center of an ethics controversy this year. The House Ethics Committee cleared her in June of allegations that she illegally lobbied for an engineering firm and a hospital while in the House.

But the state Supreme Court has agreed to hear the appeal of the GOP activist who accused the governor. The appeal concerns whether a state judge was correct in dismissing a lawsuit against Haley and sending the matter to the Ethics Committee.
