RE: Ethics Board Docket No. 98-234
Dear Mr. Duke:
The Board of Ethics, at its April 16, 1998 meeting, considered your request for an advisory opinion regarding whether you, as the Executive Director for the Louisiana Manufactured Housing Association (“LMHA”), must report expenses incurred in connection with the LMHA’s annual meeting on your lobbying expenditure report.
The Board concluded, by a vote of four to two, and instructed me to inform you that, since you are the Executive Director for the LMHA you must report all expenditures made for attending legislators, even if such expenses are paid directly by the LMHA.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
LOUISIANA BOARD OF ETHICS
Jennifer G. Magness
For the Board
