ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller says an ethics committee has reached a conclusion on what it will recommend to the Senate to address a senator’s failure to disclose work he did for a grocery store chain.

Mr. Miller told reporters Monday night he believes the recommendation will be brought to the Senate this week for consideration in the case of Sen. Ulysses Currie, Prince George’s Democrat. However, Mr. Miller says he has not read the recommendations.

Members of the panel have declined to comment on details of the case.

Mr. Miller, Calvert Democrat, says the Senate will vote on the panel’s recommendations with Mr. Currie present in the chamber.

Mr. Currie was acquitted in a federal bribery case last year relating to more than $245,000 in payments he received from Shoppers Food Warehouse.
