University of Oklahoma President David Boren is concerned that proposed ethics rules changes will be burdensome and deter some from serving as regents.

The state Ethics Commission has a proposed rule change requiring more disclosure about financial interests, property and income. The changes require more reporting on the specific sources of income, if it exceeds $5,000.

Under the amendment, the regents, university presidents, statewide elected officers, Cabinet secretaries and upper-level staff members in the governor’s office would have to disclose spousal income and where it came from.
