MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - State lawmakers joined the Attorney General's office Thursday in an effort to clear up any confusion over state ethics laws.

The Alabama Code of Ethics Clarification and Reform Commission held its second meeting Thursday afternoon, hearing comments from groups and residents.

"I think that the direction we're going in right now is a good direction," said Sen. Bobby Singleton, D-District 24. "The subcommittees that were put together to come back and define what some of those unclear areas are is what is needed. It's going to be very interesting in terms of what they bring back in terms of definitions, because definitions is basically where everything is unclear in the state right now."

Commission members were also given time to discuss issues they see in the ethics law.
