Oklahoma Ethics Commission Considers Changing Financial Disclosure Rule
The Oklahoma Ethics Commission is reconsidering a disclosure requirement for non-compensated state officers. The purpose of the rule in question is to reveal potential conflicts of interest between public duties and private economic interests of state officers and employees.
Proponents for change argue the disclosure requirements are overly burdensome and duplicative and have diminished the number of people willing to perform public service.
The commission heard public comments on Friday, June 12, and will consider revoking the rule, modifying it, or keeping it in its current form.
