The Louisiana Senate on Tuesday approved legislation that would allow some people who serve on boards and commissions to be exempted from state ethics rules that require the annual disclosure of financial information.

Senate Bill 87, sponsored by Sen. Jonathan Perry, R-Kaplan, could exempt those who do not receive compensation or a per diem for their service. Additionally, anyone who is not paid but serves on a board or commission that has the authority to spend more than $50,000 a year would still be required to file a financial disclosure.

The bill passed on a 33-4 vote and now heads to the House for consideration.
