Alaska Attorney General Dan Sullivan is moving to change the state's ethics rules in the wake of the battles waged by former Gov. Sarah Palin.
His changes would allow the state to pay the legal bills of public officials for defending against ethics complaints that are tossed out. They would also set out when a governor's family members can travel on the state's dime. Those were hot issues for Palin, who said she resigned last July in part because of what she called frivolous ethics complaints.
