Additional Information Released for Upcoming NY Amnesty Program
The Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) has released additional information for the state’s amnesty program to go into effect on January 1, 2016. Registered lobbyists and established clients of lobbyists are not eligible for the program, as it only applies to those who have not submitted any filings between December 10, 2006, and the date amnesty is applied for.
Additionally, applicants must never have been contacted by JCOPE for non-compliance or been subject of a criminal proceeding for a Lobbying Act violation.
The program will run through June 30, 2016.
