(Harrisburg) -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is the latest agency to ban the acceptance of gifts by its employees.

The board unanimously voted today to change its employee code of conduct to conform to the gift ban that Governor Tom Wolf has imposed on other executive-branch employees.

On Wednesday, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission adopted an employee gift ban.

Governor Tom Wolf applauded the actions, noting that both agencies have had their share of ethics issues, and said he hopes they will help restore public trust in state government.
