Ethics Committee Finishes Report On Currie

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland General Assembly’s joint ethics committee has completed a report it plans to send to the Senate on recommended actions for a state senator who failed to disclose work he did for a grocery store chain.

Delegate Brian McHale, a Baltimore Democrat who is the panel’s co-chairman, said Wednesday night that the recommendation on Sen. Ulysses Currie has been sent to Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller.

McHale declined to say what action the panel is recommending. McHale says the Senate president will distribute the report to the 47 members of the Senate before the details are made public.

Miller told reporters he hopes to have the recommendations before the Senate for a vote this week. Currie, D-Prince George’s, could face sanctions such as expulsion, censure or reprimand.
