State Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, discusses a proposed package of bills intended to impose new rules on public officials, at a Capitol news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Thursday, March 6, 2014. The three-bill package, called the California Accountability in Public Service Act, would prohibit legislators and their employees from accepting most entertainment-related gifts, such as tickets to sporting events and concerts. Golf outings, spa treatments and tickets to amusement and theme parks also would be banned. The package of bills comes after one Democratic senator was convicted for voter fraud and perjury and another was indicted on federal corruption charges alleging he took bribes while in office.
