Boards & Commissions

The Public Ethics Law governs boards and commissions created by statute, regulation or Executive Order having the force of law, referred to in the Law as “executive units.” The Public Ethics Law does not govern boards, commissions and other similar bodies created by legislative resolution, executive letter, simple Executive Order or some other informal means. The Ethics Commission reviews all newly-created boards and commissions to determine if they meet the definition of executive unit.
