About The Client

The State Ethics Commission, as directed in Maryland Law, administers the provisions of the Public Ethics Law, whose purpose is to encourage public confidence in the impartiality and independent judgment of State officials and employees. They administer provisions by requiring certain government officials and employees to disclose their financial affairs and to set certain minimum ethical standards for the conduct of State and local business. To accomplish these ends, the Commission, among other activities, creates and provides forms for each document required by the Public Ethics Law and retains as a public record each document filed with the Commission for at least four years after receipt.
