Bill summary

House amendment makes the following changes to the 2nd edition.

Removes the revisions of subdivisions (6) and (7) of GS 138A-24(a) made in the previous edition and reinstates the original language.

Amends GS 138A-24, concerning the contents of statements of economic interest required to be filed with the State Ethics Commission under the State Government Ethics Act, by adding a new subsection (a1) to require a public servant who is seeking an elected office covered by Article 3 of GS Chapter 138A (Public Disclosure of Economic Interests) to respond to all questions related to service as a public servant and all questions related to seeking the elected office.

Removes the deletion of GS 138A-28(e) in the previous edition and instead reinstates and amends the original language of subsection (e) as follows. Current subsection (e) provides that, if, during a biennial cycle, a public servant leaves a covered board and begins membership on another covered board, the public servant is not required to file another statement of economic interest, and the Commission is not required to evaluate the statement again in light of the subsequent appointment. The amendment changes subsection (e) to provide that, if, during the year after the statement of economic interest has been filed, a public servant begins service as a public servant in another capacity, that public servant is required to file another statement of economic interest in light of the subsequent service as a public servant. Eliminates the provision requiring the public servant to make subsequent filings pursuant to GS 138A-22(a) upon the expiration of the biennial cycle.
