State financial disclosure excessive for local officials?

SITKA, ALASKA Elected officials in Sitka are proposing a ballot question asking voters to exempt them from state financial disclosure requirements.
The Sitka assembly Tuesday night (4-22-08) passed on first reading ballot language that would allow local officials to file the shorter disclosure forms used before the overhaul of state ethics laws last year.
If it passes, the Alaska Public Offices Commission says Sitka would be the largest community so far to opt-out of the tougher rules.
