State Legislature Ethics Oversight Exchange

Brilliant good government policy proposal of the week, courtesy of Herald co-worker Todd Prussman: an interstate compact in which two different state legislatures of comparable size agree to provide all ethics and rules oversight administrative duties for each other.  This way, there is a healthy amount of distance (disinterest) while one state’s office investigates cases in their partner state’s legislature.

What other corruption-prone areas of government would benefit from such an audit-swap or oversight-swap arrangement?
