Under current law, the independent ethics commission created in
article XXIX of the state constitution does not have jurisdiction over
officials or employees of special districts or school districts. The bill
gives the independent ethics commission jurisdiction to hear complaints,
issue findings, assess penalties, and issue advisory opinions on ethics
issues concerning a local government official or local government
employee. Local government is defined to include a county,
municipality, special district, or school district. Existing ethical standards
apply to a local government official and a local government employee.
The bill applies those standards to a local government official or local
government employee through the independent ethics commission.
