For Immediate Release

INFORMAL HEARINGS SCHEDULED BY ETHICS COMMISSION

The Oklahoma Ethics Commission will hold a series of three informal hearings in early October to solicit input from citizens as the Commission considers possible amendments to its Ethics Rules. The Rules govern ethical conduct of campaigns for state office and state questions and ethical conduct of state officers and employees.

The hearings are scheduled as follows:

Friday, October 3, at 10 a.m.

Rogers State University Centennial Center
Conference Rooms B and C
1701 W. Will Rogers Blvd.
Claremore, OK

Monday, October 6, at 2 p.m.

Meridian Career Tech
Rooms A102 and A103
1312 S. Sangre Rd.
Stillwater, OK

Thursday, October 9, at 2 p.m.

Norman Public Schools Administrative Services Center
Conference Rooms A, B and C
131 S. Flood
Norman, OK

At least one member of the Ethics Commission will attend each of the hearings.

In 2013, the Commission conducted similar informal hearings as a prelude to formal hearings as the Commission completely revised its Rules for the first time in more than two decades. The purpose of the informal hearings is to establish a dialogue between the Commissioners and the public, especially those who are directly affected by the Rules.
