Indiana Speaker Bosma asks for Ethics Investigation into Turner's Lobbying

     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 (STER'-wald) Thursday requesting an investigation into whether Republican Representative Eric Turner, who served as the General Assembly's Speaker Pro Tem, violated any ethics rules when he privately lobbied other members of the Republican caucus  to block a nursing home ban that would have harmed his son’s business.  .
     Bosma also asked the panel to conduct a broader review of House ethics rules.
