Oklahoma Ethics Commission to Consider Campaign Finance, Lobbying Amendments
The Oklahoma Ethics Commission will hold a regular meeting and public hearing on December 11 to consider lobbying and campaign finance rule changes.
Amendment 2021-01 would modify ethics rules applicable to candidate committees formed for elections held prior to January 1, 2015 by providing a mandatory dissolution date, modifying uses of surplus funds and treatment of debt of those committees, and providing a repeal of ethics rules applicable to candidate committees formed for elections held prior to January 1, 2015.
Amendment 2021-02 would include “informational materials” as gifts by lobbyists, legislative liaisons, and lobbyist principals. If approved, both the campaign finance and lobbying amendments would become effective May 28, 2021.
