Oklahoma Ethics Commission to Consider Rule Amendment
The Oklahoma Ethics Commission will consider a rule amendment permitting it to collect registration fees from lobbyists, lobbyist principals, political action committees, and candidate committees. The proposed amendment would also allow the executive director to establish and collect registration fees from those participating in training events or educational classes and seminars.
If the amendment is approved, the commission would be required to publish a fee schedule on July 1 of each year beginning in 2015. There will be a public hearing and possibly a vote on the proposed amendment during the September commission meeting.
