JCOPE Approves Amnesty Program
The Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) created a six-month amnesty program to help lobbyists and clients of lobbyists comply with the New York Lobbying Act. This program will assist those who have never turned in required filings.
To be eligible to participate, the lobbyist or client cannot have previously been contacted by JCOPE for failure to comply, or been subject to criminal proceedings concerning a violation of the Lobbying Act.
The program will run from January 1 to June 30, 2016.
