Now the dual job stands finished and awaits dedication. Cooper, DcSoto, gave their appraisals of the code of ethics for state workers and elected officials. Sen. E. W. Edwards, Crowley, told the open forum on the code of ethics bill the worst thing about it was that it would destroy the right of court appeal for accused violators. He said he favored the legislation but felt he should warn backers what lo expect when it hits the Senate. He said he was "a sort qf devil's advocate." He pointed out what he called weaknesses in the legislation. Cooper called the code something unique that other states will want to follow, and said public opinion demands nothing less than the administration proposal. The Senate Judiciary C Committee plans to hold a formal hearing on the code of ethics bill at 2 p.m. Monday, unless the legislature quits until Monday night. In that case, Chairman Adcock said the hearing may be held instead at 2 p.m. Tuesday. Rep. Edward LeBreton, New Orleans, who served as chairman during the forum on the code, said he would ask the House Judiciary B Committee to set a special on the code of ethics bill Tuesday, McKeithen's industrial inducement program took one step closer toward the law books.
