RE: Ethics Board Docket No. 2003-277
February 2003 Lobbying Expenditure Report
Dear Ms. Babin:
The Board of Ethics, at its April 10, 2003 meeting, considered your request for a "good cause" waiver of the $1,050.00 late fee assessed against Laura Norman for her failure to timely file the required lobbyist expenditure report.
The Board concluded, and instructed me to inform you, that it declined to waive the late fee.
However, your late fee was reduced to $500.00 in accordance with Rule 1204D of the Rules for the board of Ethics. If a check or money order for $500.00 made payable to the Treasurer of the State of Louisiana is not received on or before June 26, 2003, then this matter will be placed before the Board for further action.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (800) 842-6630 or (225) 763-8777.
THE LOUISIANA BOARD OF ETHICS
