RE: Ethics Board Docket No. 97-163
Dear Mr. Bourque:
The Louisiana Board of Ethics, during the course of its March 20-21, 1997 meeting, considered your request to waive the statutory late fees automatically imposed on you for the late filing of your Lobbying Expenditure Report due February 15, 1997.
The Board declined to waive the automatic late fee of $250 for the five days late which your report was filed. Please submit your check or money order made payable to the State of Louisiana no later than May 1, 1997.
Additionally, the Board considered your correspondence concerning the hearing scheduled for June 19, 1997 regarding your late filing of the Lobbying Expenditure Report due August 15, 1996. The Board voted to leave those charges in tact and consider your reasons for your late filing of that report during the course of the public hearing.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Very truly yours,
LOUISIANA BOARD OF ETHICS
Patricia H. Douglas
For the Board
