Keith Hall http://weku.fm/post/ethics-panel-hammers-state-rep-keith-hall <p><a href="http://news-expressky.com/news/article_5b89e98c-f45a-11e0-8a54-001cc4c03286.html?success=1">State Rep. W. Keith Hall was fined and reprimanded </a>by a legislative ethics panel Tuesday after he admitted the panel had evidence sufficient to convict him of violating state ethics laws. The ethics probe centered around work a company owned by Hall did on a sewer line extension project in 2005. Hall voted to approve the state budget which contained coal severance tax funding earmarked for water and sewer projects. A portion of that money found its way to Hall&rsquo;s company via its work installing electrical boxes as part of the sewer extension.
