Bosma asks House Ethics Committee to review Turner

Turner

INDIANAPOLIS – Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma is asking members of the House Ethics Committee to determine whether a lawmaker did anything wrong in privately lobbying for his family’s nursing home business.

Bosma wrote a letter to Ethics Chairman Greg Steuerwald on Thursday requesting an investigation into whether Republican Rep. Eric Turner violated any ethics rules.

The Associated Press reported Monday that Turner had lobbied other members of the Republican caucus in private last week to block a nursing home ban that would have harmed his son’s business.

Democratic Party Chairman John Zody asked for an ethics investigation in a letter sent to Bosma on Tuesday.

Bosma also asked the panel to conduct a broader review of House ethics rules.
