HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is the latest agency to ban the acceptance of gifts by its employees.

The board unanimously voted Friday to change its employee code of conduct to conform to the gift ban that Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has imposed on other executive-branch employees.

On Wednesday, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission adopted an employee gift ban.

Gov. Tom Wolf applauded the actions, noting that both agencies have had their share of ethics issues, and said he hopes they will help restore public trust in state government.
