Requests for advice as to whether a specific set of facts and circumstances constitutes a violation of the Conflicts Law, or any code, rules or regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, should be made in writing to the Executive Director of the Commission. The individual requesting an opinion should provide as much information as possible regarding the request and include any relevant documentation. In the event that additional information is required, a Commission investigator will contact the appropriate individuals or organizations.
