BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The measure known around the Capitol as the “Bujak bill” passed the House as lawmakers seek to eliminate potential conflicts of interest. The bill that cleared the chamber 64-1 Monday gives the Idaho attorney general’s office authority to conduct the initial investigation into an allegation of misconduct against a county prosecutor or members of a local county commission.

Currently, county prosecutors handle those complaints. The bill was drafted by lawmakers in Canyon County, where former prosecutor John Bujak has been embroiled in accusations of misusing public money and other transgressions. Rep. Gayle Batt of Wilder says the bottom line is this: No public official should decide if they should make an ethics investigation on themselves or on their client, the county commission. The measure goes to Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter.
