Panel Approves Subpoena Requests in Sansom Case

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A House committee considering ethics charges against former House Speaker Ray Sansom is nudging closer to a resolution in the case.

The House Select Committee on Standards of Official Conduct approved requests Wednesday by attorneys on both sides to go ahead with subpoenas for witnesses they want to testify at a Feb. 22 hearing. Sansom's attorney, Gloria Fletcher of Gainesville, also asked the panel to reconsider a decision it made last week to proceed with the ethics case instead of postponing it until after a criminal case in the matter is decided.

Rep. Bill Galvano, who chairs the committee, also said Sansom's counsel has approached them about resolving the case by a consent decree.
