Applied Ethics: Vermont State Code of Ethics
The State of Vermont does not have a Code of Ethics. The state recently organized the Vermont State Ethics Commission to create a Code of Ethics and is seeking public input on a draft code of ethics for elected and public officials. Unless you are a Vermont resident, it would not be appropriate to submit your input. However, it is interesting to see how these things develop. Take a look at the draft at the link below (about 7 pages long). Do you think the draft is sufficient? Is it thorough enough? What are its best points? What areas could be improved? Other suggestions?
