Maryland Pay-to-Play Disclosure Regulations Proposed
The State Board of Elections has proposed new pay-to-play disclosure rules and regulations.
The board seeks to align current rules with the recent legislative change requiring business entities to disclose contributions of certain subsidiaries, even if those subsidiaries do not have contracts with the state. In addition, the new regulations would increase the amount of time a vendor has to file the initial contribution disclosure form and would clarify internal disclosure obligations and processes for vendor employees and CEOs under current state law.
The proposed rules and regulations remain open for public comment through May 30, 2016.
