North Dakota Adopts Exception to Gift Ban
The North Dakota Ethics Commission unanimously approved an exception to the gift ban for food or beverage with a value of $10 or less, excluding gratuity, purchased for a public official in conjunction with an informal social and educational event.
The purchased food and beverage must be consumed during the event and a state resident must be present but is not required to be the purchaser of the food or beverage.
This new exception is effective immediately.
