The House ethics committee confirmed Thursday evening it has opened an investigation into ties between the now-defunct PMA Group lobbying firm and several members of Congress.

The panel acted in response to recently introduced legislation that would direct it to disclose the probe, which would otherwise stay under wraps.

The firm gave millions to lawmakers, including prominent Democratic appropriators like Reps. Jack Murtha (PA) and Pete Visclosky (IN). Visclosky is reportedly also the subject of a federal investigation, as is the PMA Group.
