BEND, OR -- State Representative Knute Buehler (R-Bend) is pleased with the outcome of a state ethics investigation into payments he received from medical device companies but failed to disclose on elections filings. Dr. Buehler failed to file paperwork for the $96,000 in payments his company received from the Stryker Corporation, which makes hip and knee replacement devices. The company also has a contract with the state Department of Corrections.

 

Rep. Buehler released a statement Friday saying he’s pleased with the Ethics Commission’s decision to issue a "letter of education" regarding the allegations:

"I am pleased that the ethics commission carefully reviewed these politically motivated claims and dismissed two and declined to issue fines or penalties for the third. This is the appropriate response to an inadvertent paperwork filing error on my part that I have now fixed. I might also point out that this is the same remedy recently issued by the commission to two senior members of the Governor's staff."
