The State Ethics Commission interprets and enforces the State Government Ethics Act and portions of the Lobbying Law. Members of the eight-member bipartisan Commission are appointed by the Governor (four members) and by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore of the Senate (two members) and the Speaker of the House (two members).

The Commission provides informal and formal advice on the Ethics Act and Lobbying Law and investigates complaints alleging violations of those laws.


Ethics Commission staff has been working hard to build a new website. We hope it will help members of the public and the regulated community understand the Commission's role in ensuring the integrity of State-level public officials.
