State Rep. Andrew Fink, of Adams Township, today introduced a bill requiring the state to make public the name of executive government officials involved in a sexual harassment settlement utilizing taxpayer dollars for payment.

Fink believes state government should be as transparent as possible, especially when taxpayer dollars are being spent.

“The people of Michigan deserve to know how their elected officials conduct themselves,” Fink said.

The bill would require that the name of an executive official be made public upon request if the executive office settles a sexual harassment or assault claim with taxpayer dollars.

Fink also supported the House’s legislative ethics package earlier this year, which included several government transparency measures for state legislators.
