RE: Ethics Board Docket No. 97-293
Dear Mr. Valence:
The Board of Ethics, at its April 17-18, 1997 meeting, considered your request for a "good cause" waiver of the $2100 late fee assessed for your failure to timely file the required campaign finance disclosure report.
The Board concluded, and instructed me to inform you, that it would reduce the late fee imposed to $200. If a check or money order for $200 made payable to the Treasurer of the State of Louisiana is not received on or before May 19, 1997, then this matter will be placed before the Board for further action.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
