EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Amy L. Scbwartz Dear Mr. President:
(202-456-7953)

On behalf of the President's Commission on Federal
Ethics Law Reform, I take pride in presenting to you our
report and recommendations. We have titled our report "To
Serve with Honor" as a reflection of our desire to keep
sight, as we carried out our responsibilities, of the dignity
and self-esteem that attaches through honorable service.

To ensure that serving with honor is the aspiration of every employee in our Government, the country will need leadership at the very top and down through the ranks, clarification and simplification of laws and regulations, education and training at every echelon, and additional laws making more equitable the conflicts of interest standards covering across the three branches of our Government. In creating this Commission and in your demonstrated concern for the high ethical standards of the Administration, you have already demonstrated valued leadership.

We have not attempted to give you a pre-packaged legislative program, but rather have provided our views on the issues, as we have defined and refined them in public discussion. We hope that many of our recommendations will commend themselves to you, as well as to the Congress, and serve as the basis for needed additional legislation and for a pattern of ethical standards and conduct in all branches of our Government.

For the Commission Members I wish to express our appreciation to you, Mr. President, for the opportunity to have been of some assistance to you and our country.

Respectfully,
malesh
Malcolm Richard Wilkey!
Chairman
