Abstract

Amend KRS 6.681 to require the Legislative Ethics Commission provide a draft of its proposed response to an advisory opinion request at least 10 days before it is scheduled to consider the advisory opinion; amend KRS 6.686 to require the commission to determine whether there is reason to believe a person has committed or about to commit an ethics code violation; provide that if the commission finds by a vote of at least five members that there is reason to believe a violation has been or is about to be committed, it shall initiate a preliminary inquiry into the alleged violations; provide that if less than five members find there is reason to believe a violation has been or is about to be committed, then it shall dismiss the complaint; provide that a reason to believe finding is not a finding that a person has violated the code, but that the finding merits further inquiry and investigation.
