Public Comment Period Begins for New Virginia Ethics Forms
The Virginia Conflict of Interest and Ethics Advisory Council has opened up its proposed forms for public comment. The proposed forms include the lobbyist disclosure statement and instructions for fulfilling disclosure requirements.
The council was required, pursuant to the passage of Senate Bill 692, to create new forms for use by lobbyists and public officials who are required to make public disclosures. Creating the new forms must be completed by January 1, 2017.
Those wishing to comment may do so through September 18 by emailing the council at firstname.lastname@example.org and writing “Public Comment” in the subject line.
