The State Ethics Commission is a non-partisan, independent state agency, consisting of five members who are appointed to serve staggered, five-year terms. The Commission staff are organized into three separate divisions:
- Legal Division
- Public Education and Communications Division
- Enforcement Division
The mission of the State Ethics Commission is to foster integrity in public service in state, county and local government, to promote the public's trust and confidence in that service, and to prevent conflicts between private interests and public duties. We strive to accomplish this mission by conducting ongoing educational programs, providing clear and timely advice, and fairly and impartially interpreting and enforcing the conflict of interest and financial disclosure laws.
Request Advice from the Legal Division
Anyone who is covered by the conflict of interest law may request free legal advice about how the law applies to them in a particular situation. The advice is confidential in most circumstances.
