Frequently Asked Questions - Non-Disputed Information
The question applies only to state officials and employees.
If you are a state official or employee, and you received a statement from a legislative agent or lobbyist, disclosing that he or she spent money to lobby you, and you do not dispute the information on the statement, that is non-disputed information. You must attach the statement to your FDS.
If you have not received such a statement from a legislative agent or lobbyist for the preceding calendar year, or you dispute the information on the statement, you can check the box saying you have nothing to disclose.
Please contact the staff at the Joint Legislative Ethics Committee for more information regarding “non-disputed information” and what to do if you dispute information on a legislative agent’s or lobbyist’s disclosure statement—(614) 728-5100.
