Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is expected to tap Rep. David Price (D-N.C.) to fill the vacancy left on the ethics task force by Rep. Marty Meehan (D-Mass.), who resigned from Congress to become chancellor of the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
The task force, led by Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Mass.), so far has been unsuccessful in reaching consensus on the creation of an outside ethics commission to screen ethics complaints.
