Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission Annual Report
Recent Submissions to Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission Annual Report
The Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission was established by the Kansas Legislature in 1974
to administer, interpret, and enforce the Campaign Finance Act (K.S.A. 25-4142 et seq.) and laws relating to conflict of interests, financial disclosure, and the regulation of lobbying (K.S.A. 46-215 et seq.). These laws establish the public’s right to information about the financial affairs of Kansas’ public officials, lobbyists, and candidates for state and local office. The Commission also renders advisory opinions and can adopt rules and regulations under a less comprehensive conflict of interests law covering local governmental officials and employees (K.S.A. 75-4301 et seq.).
This annual report and recommendations is submitted to the Governor and the
Director of Legislative Administrative Services for transmittal to the Legislature pursuant
to K.S.A. 25-4119a and K.S.A. 46-1212c. The report provides a picture of the Commission's operations during the respective fiscal year.
