Ethics commission offers advice on use of office

Legislators may use their office stationery to help worthy causes in their districts, as long as they have no financial stake in the success or failure of an endeavor.

The revised ethics statute passed by the 2013 Legislature does not allow ex-lawmakers to get an official imprimatur from the House and Senate, or executive agencies, for products or services they peddle to government employees. However, they are allowed to hawk their wares to state employees just like any other business.
