One of the many entities responsible for overseeing the ethical conduct of legislators in North Carolina is the North Carolina Legislative Ethics Committee. The North Carolina Legislative Ethics Committee is a committee of members of the North Carolina General Assembly. Half of its members are state senators and half are state representatives. The Committee has jurisdiction to investigate the conduct of legislators while acting in their official capacity, and its investigations can lead to admonishment, censure, or removal of the legislator from office.
