Government Ethics and Lobbying Act
The governmental ethics & lobbying laws in Chapter 68B govern the conduct of governmental officials, employees, and lobbyists. The Board administers the chapter as it applies to executive branch officials, employees, candidates for statewide office, and executive branch lobbyists. The Board gives advice to local governmental personnel, but enforcement is conducted by the county attorney. The Board may enter into an agreement with a political subdivision to enforce the subdivision's adopted code of ethics. The Senate and House Ethics Committees have jurisdiction over ethics and lobbying issues involving the legislative branch.
