New York JCOPE to Hold Public Hearing Regarding Proposed Regulations
The Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) will conduct a public hearing on proposed regulations in Hearing Room A of the Legislative Building, 198 State Street, Albany, New York on October 30, from 1-4 p.m.
The proposed regulations compile existing guidelines and advisory opinions regarding rules and requirements related to lobbying. The proposals were originally introduced in October 2016 and were reviewed in December 2016.
After the public hearing, JCOPE will review comments and decide if further amendments must be made. If the rules are adopted, JCOPE must follow the State Administrative Procedures Act and file the full text of the rule with the Department of State.
More information about the proposed regulations are available at JCOPE’s website.
