Gov, attorney general ask workers not to quit over ethics law

DENVER – Gov. Bill Ritter and Attorney General John Suthers on Tuesday asked state workers not to quit their jobs over a new ethics law, saying it’s not clear how it applies to them and it will take time to determine the impact.”We are troubled by the recent reports of government employees leaving or contemplating leaving government service due to concerns over Amendment 41 and the restrictions that they fear it will impose on their children’s opportunity to apply and be considered for scholarships. We ask for your patience and understanding while work continues to clarify the meaning of Amendment 41,” the two men said in a joint letter sent to all state employees.Both said they are convinced that it was not the intent of the voters to limit the opportunities of the children of government employees to compete for scholarships.Neither had an estimate of how many people have quit because of the new law.
