(IOCI RADIO) – Illinois Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias is kicking off his term by implementing new ethics standards.

Giannoulias signed an executive order that launches a review of state vehicle use, strengthens the office’s sexual harassment policies, and prohibits threatening behavior. The goal is to boost the public’s trust.

Other provisions reinforce rules that office employees and contractual workers cannot donate to the Secretary of State’s campaign fund.
