Georgia Commission Gets Old Name Back
Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill changing the name of the Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission back to the State Ethics Commission.
The much longer commission name was the product of a major ethics overhaul in 2010.
In addition to the name change, House Bill 572 also clarifies rules for late contribution reporting.
A contribution designated for a general election given close to a primary election date does not need reported within two days.
The new law will take effect on July 1.
