The 2006 N.C. General Assembly short session passed a significant new law--the State Government Ethics Act, which established ethical standards for the conduct of state officials in all three branches of government and imposed new regulations and restrictions on those entities and individuals who seek to influence them. These laws have been amended every session since 2006. This bulletin reflects the current state of the law through the 2010 legislative short session.
This bulletin is an updated version of two earlier bulletins by A. Fleming Bell, II, and Norma Houston: \"2006-2009 State Ethics and Lobbying Reform Statutes,\" No. 122, and \"2006-2010: State Ethics and Lobbying Reform Statutes,\" No. 123. The bulletin reflects the current state of the law through the 2012 session.
