The plan is meant to "strengthen trust in government" and proposes to revoke the pensions of corrupt officials, provide more ethics training and create a permanent committee to investigate misconduct.

But some observers say there are already plenty of ethics laws and rules on the books, it's just a case of some officials deciding not to observe them.

We'll talk to Senate president Pro Tem Don Williams about this plan. Will ethics reforms help to clean up Connecticut politics?
