   A Message from Carol Carson, Executive Director, Office of State Ethics

Knowing the Limits

     

The Code of Ethics tells public officials and state employees what they should do in challenging situations.  Just because we learned right from wrong as children, that does not mean that as adults we automatically know the speed limit everywhere we drive.  Remember that the Office of State Ethics wants to help you understand and get it right! 

                                         

Any person, may, at any time request informal advice, either verbal or in writing, regarding the Code of Ethics for Public Officials or the Code of Ethics for Lobbyists. 

                                                   

Our staff attorneys are available to provide you with free legal advice.
