Financial Disclosures: State Agency Connections

Most states’ personal financial disclosure requirements include ties that a public official may have with a state agency.

If a legislator owns a business or maintains a professional license regulated by an agency, for example, that information may need to be shared with the appropriate ethics oversight agency. Several states require legislators to disclose if they, or a business with which they are associated, contract with a division of the state.

The type and extent of information relating to agency connections that must be disclosed varies widely between states. The following table details each state’s statutory requirements relating to state agency connections.

Some state agency disclosure requirements may overlap with other categories of required disclosures. For additional information, visit the 50-state tables on income, representation of others, lobbyist connections and gifts and honoraria.

This table is intended to provide general information and does not necessarily address all aspects of this topic. Because the facts of each situation may vary, this information may need to be supplemented by consulting legal advisors. All content is up to date through 09/03/2021.
