COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The House has rejected the Senate’s changes in a bill that would require lawmakers and other public employees to report their income from private companies.

The House passed two amendments to the Senate bill Thursday. One would require public officials to report the amount as well as the source of the income. The second would require nonprofit organizations to reveal who gives the money they spend on elections and other political campaigns.

The Senate likely won’t agree to those changes. They discussed both ideas and rejected them last month. That would send the bill to a conference committee.

The House and Senate have also passed different versions of a bill that would allow independent ethics investigations of lawmakers.
