A former Democratic state legislator has been appointed to one of the five seats on the state's Independent Ethics Commission.
Dan Grossman, who served as a state representative between 1997-2003 and as a state senator from 2003-2007, was nominated by Senate president Peter Groff, D-Denver, to replace Republican Sally Hooper.
Grossman's nomination will have to be confirmed by the state senate. The vote on the nomination is expected to occur Wednesday.
Gov. Bill Ritter will name a replacement for Democratic commission member Nancy Friedman. Ritter is required by law to appoint a Republican to that seat.
The Independent Ethics Commission is responsible for enforcing Amendment 41, the far-reaching anti-corruption initiative approved by voters in 2006.
