Alabama Ethics Commission Increases De Minimis Amount
The Alabama Ethics Commission voted to increase the amount of de minimis items a lobbyist or lobbyist employer may give to public officials.
The new amounts are $32 or less per occasion with an aggregate of $64 or less per calendar year.
Previously the amount was $25 or less per occasion with an aggregate of $50 or less in a calendar year.
The change will only affect the definition of de minimis and has no effect on the exception for meals within the Alabama Code.
